Brickbats to state Rep. Janet Adkins
Brickbats to state Rep. Janet Adkins for filing a bill to keep teacher evaluation data private. Adkins said she introduced the bill at the request of the Florida Department of Education. The Florida Education Association teachers’ union also supports the bill. Adkins, a Fernandina Beach Republican, filed her bill in response to a lawsuit filed by The Florida Times-Union seeking access to the data under open records laws. Public records should be available to public scrutiny.
