United Teachers of Dade (UTD) and the MiamiDadeSchool District reached a tentative agreement Monday giving a raise to Miami Dade teachers and other educational support professionals.
Gov. Rick Scott’s budget will include an increase for education. During an address at the Capitol, Scott said he’ll propose an increase of $1.2 billion in the K-12 education budget, a roughly $400 per student increase.
For the first time in three years, public school teachers in Miami-Dade will be getting a raise. On Monday they held a vote to ratify a new contract. The agreement passed with 11,074 voting “Yes” and 6,194 voting “No”, passing by 64.1%.
