It’s About Florida: A conversation with Florida Education Association President Andy Ford

Governor Rick Scott says he wants to hear from public school students and teachers on how to make Florida’s education system better. And he’s been meeting with one of his main opponents: The Florida Education Association. The teacher’s union has opposed many of the Governor’s education policies, like a new evaluation system that ties teacher pay to student performance, and the end of tenure for new teachers. But both sides now say they want to find some common ground. Today we speak with Florida Education Association President Andy Ford about the future of Florida’s education system.

Guest: Andy Ford, President of the Florida Education Association
