Statement from Gov. Jeb Bush, Founder and Chairman of the Foundation for Excellence in Education, on Gov. Ron DeSantis signing House Bill 641 which raises beginning teacher pay and provides incentives for districts when students earn an Advanced Placement Capstone Diploma.

“Florida’s teachers have the power to change the lives of hundreds of thousands of students every day. No profession in our state is more deserving of this investment that will reward teachers for their hard work and attract more of Florida’s brightest young minds to make teaching their career.


“Gov. DeSantis kept his promise to educators in the face of unprecedented challenges. This bold investment will pay off for generations.”
