Frank Roder - Teacher

"We are not going to roll over and play dead," said Frank Roder, a vice president of the United School Employees of Pasco.
"Some people think it is a done deal," Roder said. He hopes that it's not. "We're out here to let people know, we care our about kids, we care about our jobs and hopefully, we'll get some of their attention," he said. He cited several concerns, including Senate Bill 736, which he characterized as essentially a rewrite of Senate Bill 6, vetoed last year by Gov. Roder said he's not opposed to all forms of pay for performance, but thinks any change along those lines should be done after testing it out in pilot schools and tweaking it to be sure it works. Roder said district employees are scared about potential layoffs. "The custodians, the people in the lunchrooms, are afraid of what's going to happen," he said. Teaching assistants are worried, too. Concerns about layoffs are legitimate because personnel is the district's biggest expense and the district faces a $60 million shortfall, said Roder, who is on the district's budget review committee. The layoffs have human consequences, he said. "You're talking about families in our community who are going to be out of a job." Collective bargaining is another big issue, Roder added. Wisconsin and Ohio have already captured national headlines regarding efforts to dismantle collecting bargaining - with opponents claiming states simply can't afford the benefits granted to public employees through collective bargaining. "I don't know how we became public enemy No. 1," Roder said. "I've been in education for 36 years. Teachers in Polk and Pinellas also held similar rallies, Roder said.

Frank Roder, a vice president with United School Employees of Pasco, said a message the union hopes to get across with the rally is that any education reform happening in Tallahassee should include input from educators.
"We basically want a seat at the table," Roder said. The union isn't necessarily opposed to education reform in general, it's some details that have people worried, he said. For example, many teachers would agree that the process for evaluating them could benefit from changes, but a system that places too heavy an emphasis on students' standardized test scores isn't the way to go, Roder said. The union has several other concerns, too. Those include the governor's plan to require school employees and other state workers to contribute 5 percent to their pension funds, and other proposals that the union says could jeopardize the stability of the Florida Retirement System and the health insurance subsidies that retirees receive. "One of the things we want to get across is that Florida Retirement System is in pretty good shape financially," Roder said. "It's the state of Florida that's not in good shape." The union also has concerns about plans to cut education spending. Based on the governor's proposed budget, Pasco could experience a $44 million cut. "That's going to be drastic," Roder said.
