New Merit Pay System Faces Challenge From Teachers Union

 CBS Miami

While some applaud the new merit pay system for the state’s teachers, the occupation’s union is fighting it head on.

A judge is holding a hearing to decide on a union challenge to the new law, which also ends tenure for new hires.

Lawyers for the Florida Education Association and the state Department of Education are making their arguments Wednesday to Circuit Judge John Cooper in Tallahassee.

Cooper’s decision is expected to be appealed regardless of what he decides.
