ORANGE PARK, Fla. -- Two days a week, kindergarten teacher Liz Crane is in the classroom, and the rest of the week she's in the Clay County Education Association office as president of the teachers union.
"I'm concerned with this bill, you will have high turnover," said Crane.
Crane, reacting to the passage of Florida Senate Bill 736 which was passed Wednesday, said that while Clay does not have a merit pay plan, all teachers now must pass a performance evaluation process.
"Are we assessing them? Are we doing all those things? Yes, we are. Do we have something in place to say the child gains so many points on the FCAT or the FAIR test, you're going to get an increase? No," she said.
