Scott Looking to ‘Make Nice’ with Teachers
Gov. Rick Scott said teachers want to make sure they’re respected and get the professional training they need and that he’ll propose $2 million to make more training available.
“One of the things that will be in my budget this year will be a … matching grant program to work with the school districts, to work with foundations, work with companies to do more professional development for our teachers,” Scott said Tuesday. “My experience in business has been that if you hope your employees get better, you’ve got to make sure you put them in a position that they can do a good job on the development of whatever their skills are so I’ll have $2 million in my budget this year to … do a matching grant program.”
