Our Teachers in Orlando
State Officials are warning to expect more cuts for the rest of this school year and another 10 to 15 percent next year. At a Saturday rally in Orlando, it was clear just how these numbers are affecting educators in our community.
It is 8:30 a.m. in the morning and teachers from Alachua County, students, as well as the community are hopping on a bus, not to school with a backpack, but rather to Orlando with an agenda.
For the groups, the two and a half hour trip from Gainesville was worth the effort because the nearly 140 school bus riders want to show that students come first and they say cutting their education comes last. For the complete story please see video:
