There’s concern from some local educators over Governor Jeb Bush’s so-called A Plus Plus plan. Donna Motzanard is president of the Teachers Association of Lee County. She says it takes too much control out of local hands.
“One of our biggest concerns, and one of my concerns, is that they seem to be taking away more and more local control for school districts to be able to decide what’s best for their district.”
The wide-ranging education overhaul mandates when schools can start classes…no sooner than the week before Labor Day. It also would hand over control of chronically failing schools to the State Board of Education and Governor.
