More on Florida

From the Associated Press, via Education Week:
Conservatives Hail Fla. Teacher Bill as Model

Business interests as well as most Republicans backed the bill that was opposed by teachers and their unions, local school officials and Democrats.

Read the rest here.

I'd be interested in hearing any thoughts from Florida CEE members about this.

Florida is the reason I think congressional government is failing. I am of the opinion now that state legislators and federal legislators should be drafted. The government pays you your salary for your regular job and maybe a bit extra and it's like jury duty. We might actually get some thoughtful people in government. Could any of us run for public office? I doubt it...most of us are working too damn hard.

My other thought is to make Florida a territory kind of like the Yukon. If they pass this mess they shouldn't be a state..since they only touch a couple places on their north one would miss them, really.
