Across the state of Florida, we find more and more stories of schools loosing funding. This has a huge impact on the moral of teachers. If keeping students engaged in the learning process wasn’t already a challenge, now try doing it with less resources.
“State spending on education as percentage of total resources Florida ranks 42nd. As a state, Florida spends only 3.1% of its resources on education.” Source: Education Week, Quality Counts, 2009
THE QUESTION: As a teacher in the state of Florida, if you had 4x the resources you have now, what improvements or changes would you make in your classroom? How would that impact the students?
Be creative. Elaborate. Inspire Florida teachers with your ideas!
