Local Education News with Jessica Vaughn

Jessica Vaughn, Hillsborough Co. School Board member, District 3

Florida is now LAST in the nation in teacher pay, according to a recent survey reported by the National Education Association! We discussed that, the State’s pre-emption of the allocation of state education funding, the Hillsborough County Community Investment Tax education allocation to capital improvements, the need for the November referendum on the ballot to raise teacher pay by increasing the millage property taxes, the drop in Florida Bright Futures scholarship awards, book bans, and much more with Jessica Vaughn, Hillsborough School Board member from District 3, North and New Tampa. Listen to the entire show here, on the WMNF app, or as a WMNF podcast wherever you get your podcasts.
