Florida Education Association president Joanne McCall has big ambitions for the state’s 2016 legislative elections.
Many lawmakers who have been unfriendly to the teacher union’s view of public education will depart, while others face more realistic challenges than they have in the past. It’s a chance, McCall said, to begin changing the complexion of Tallahassee education politics.
“The message I’m sending to all my members is, this is our opportunity,” she said. “Fair Districts has given us just that, fairer districts where people can actually compete.”
