Fla. gov. won't get $2,500 raises for teachers

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Fla. Gov. Rick Scott isn't going to succeed in getting $2,500 pay raises for the state's teachers.
 
Florida legislators meeting over the weekend have settled on setting aside nearly $480 million to boost teacher pay. But House and Senate budget negotiators made it clear they will not hand out raises the way Scott wanted.

Instead, legislators will push ahead with a proposal to base the raises on teacher performance. They also plan to offer raises to beyond classroom teachers -- a move which could also lower the amount offered to each employee.
 
Scott had made the across the board teacher pay raise one of his top priorities for the 2013 session. But legislators had signaled their reluctance with the proposal from the start.
