Teacher's raises not arriving quite as planned
FLORIDA -- Governor Rick Scott's pay raise for teachers isn't arriving quite as promised.
Scott this year pledged $480 million dollars so that teachers could get a $2500 dollar across the board pay raise.
Legislators set aside the money.
But so far only 13 of the states 67 school districts have completed negotiations with local unions over the pay raises.
$26 million has been given out so far.
Republican legislators wanted districts to primarily link raises to performance but only two districts took that approach.
