Hillsborough teachers & supporters rally outside school board meeting

Teachers and their supporters rallied at Tuesday afternoon’s meeting of the Hillsborough County School Board.

They’ve demonstrated outside the last several meetings.

The executive director of HCTA — the Hillsborough teachers’ union — Stephanie Baxter-Jenkins, says they’re no closer to a contract agreement with the school district.

Baxter-Jenkins says the local struggle of teachers for fair pay ties in with efforts by Republican leaders in the Florida Legislature to de-certify teachers’ unions.
