Protect the Florida Retirement System
The Florida Legislature is considering dangerous changes to the Florida Retirement System that put the entire retirement system at risk.
Stop changes to the State Group Health Insurance plan
The United Faculty of Florida opposes HB 7007, which would severely increase healthcare premiums for many university faculty and state employees in 2020. The proposal is designed to reduce state costs by establishing different levels of coverage promoted as a “choice” of plans — without addressing the root cause of increasing healthcare costs.
Tell your legislator that students need common sense testing
Out-of–control testing in Florida is cheating our students of valuable instruction time. Tell legislators to trust the professionals who work with our students every day who know what works best when it comes to their classrooms, student learning and assessment.
Speak Up on Institutional Racism
Institutional racism is deeply ingrained in our school system due to the flaws in our education system that don’t bridge the gaps in access and opportunity, they expand them. If we do not address this in our own schools and communities nothing will change. Our students deserve better, and we must lead the change.
