CLAY COUNTY, Fla. -- Teachers will not get the raises they say they were promised.

The Clay County Education Association says its plan to give teachers larger raises was shot down by the school board during a collective bargaining meeting tonight in Green Cove Springs.

They wanted teachers to be paid more than the county is offering, a little more than $350.

The union says Gov. Rick Scott intended for more money to go to teachers rather than administrators.

Seems to me that this Superintendent and School Board have no problem wasting the tax payers money on litigation against each other, but provide a decent wage for teachers. Nah. Also seems to me that this Superintendent has done nothing but stir up controversy since his election. Time to get some 'real' understanding educators on the Board and in the Super's office. Teacher's in Clay County deserve every penny the State and County can provide
