Boosting Our Teachers & Education
Teaching is a highly under appreciated profession in America today. Here in Florida, we have an endemic pay problem. While the national average teacher salary is over $67,000, it is only around $47,000 in Florida. Why should our Floridian teachers make $20,000 less? Why should these under-compensated professionals pay for their own school supplies and be forced to choose between teaching quality and their rent? Fighting for teachers is fighting for our kids and our economic future.
Guido is the only congressional candidate who was born and raised here and who went through South Florida’s school system. His teachers helped Guido turn his life around as a struggling student.
As a teenager, Guido started high school with bad grades, and a knack for getting into trouble. His teachers mentored him and were critical in showing him the path to success. With their help and support, Guido returned to a high school he left after getting into trouble the year prior. The year he came back Guido became class President and earned near perfect grades.
As your Congressman, Guido will fight for teachers day in and day out:
He will fight to raise teacher salaries, healthcare, and benefits. He will push to improve nationwide education policy that puts our education systems back to when they were the best in the world.
Significantly increasing the number of teachers we have.
Fully fund public schools and federal special education programming.
Fight against the high rates of high school dropouts.
