The voices of teachers have been heard!  The GDOE superintendent, Jon Fernandez, informed GFT president, Sanjay Sharma, that he has decided not to move forward with the proposal after reviewing all the testimonies from teachers.  Fernandez stated, “the testimony of numerous teachers is that, not only would the change negatively impact the earnings of teachers, but also that it would be detrimental to the department’s efforts to support and retain teachers.”  There will be no further action on this matter.
