Last Call Friday | Listen to this entire show:

On today’s Last Call we spoke with teachers who were attending one of several rallies that took place in Pinellas County on Friday afternoon. They’re demanding an end to the defunding and dismantling of public education as well as the scapegoating of teachers that’s going on in Florida and across the US.

Florida ranked 37th in average teacher pay for the last school year and is expected to plummet to No. 47 in the nation according to a new report from the National Education Association.
