Governor Ron DeSantis Announces Unprecedented Legislation to Empower Educators, Protect Teachers from Overreaching School Unions and Raise Teacher Pay


Date: Jan. 23, 2023

"This is a huge package to increase teacher pay, support teacher empowerment and protect teachers' paychecks by ensuring they have control over their hard-earned salary," said Governor Ron DeSantis. "We want more transparency into how school unions operate, and we are going to fight against school union haggling that holds teachers and their salary increases hostage. Partisan groups should not be given special privileges."
