Florida’s Teachers Agree: Rick Scott Has Failed the Test As Governor

New Poll of Teachers Shows Widespread Support for Charlie Crist

Today, the Florida Democratic Party released the following polling memo highlighting just how strongly Florida’s classroom teachers reject Rick Scott and his disastrous record on education.  

“The results of this poll confirm what many Floridians already know: Rick Scott has failed Florida’s education system,” said Florida Democratic Party Executive Director Scott Arceneaux. “Our classroom teachers have been on the front lines for four years under this governor, and they’ve seen firsthand how devastating his $1.3 billion dollar cut to public schools has been for Florida’s students. Scott’s policies of increased standardized testing, larger high school class sizes, and less time for teachers to actually teach in the classroom have unified Florida’s educators in opposition to this failed governor.”  

Here are some of the key takeaways from this new poll:
