Remove Superintendent Byrd from Polk County Public Schools

This petition made change with 4,996 supporters!

Polk county teachers are now under direct attack from the Polk County Public Schools Superintendent.  Instead of calling for a day off for the large amount of teachers going to the rally, she has decided to involve the Florida Department of Education.  Now, any Polk County Public Schools teacher who does not show up for work on Monday has been threatened by the Florida Department of Education with termination and up to a $20,000 fine.

This is an outrage!  This county is already short staffed with some classrooms having up to fifty students for one teacher!  

Teachers are suffering with inadequate wages, inadequate support from the Polk County Public Schools, and inadequate staffing.  

The education, safety, and welfare of the students depend on teachers!

Teachers have to stand up against oppression by the Polk County Public Schools and Superintendent Byrd!

It is time people rise up and say, "Enough!!"

Please stand up for and help the teachers of Polk County Public Schools by signing this petition.  It is addressed to Governor DeSantis and the lawmakers in Tallahassee.  

It's time teachers fight back.  It's time for the class community to stand behind their student's teachers!
