The report cards are in, and Collier County’s legislative delegation appears to have flunked.
State Sen. Kathleen Passidomo and State Reps. Byron Donald and Bob Rommel all earned a grade of “F” from the Florida Education Association for their performance in 2017 and 2018.
From the association’s report:
The FEA Legislative Report Card measures Florida legislators’ overall support for public education — including students, teachers, and education staff professionals.
Scores and letter grades are based on the following criteria:
· Committee and floor votes during the 2017 and 2018 legislative sessions and interim committee weeks;
· Behind-the-scenes work to advance or impede FEA priority issues; and
· Accessibility of the legislator and staff to FEA staff and leaders
Additionally, emphasis continues to be given to votes and other actions involving union rights. We believe it is important to hold lawmakers accountable at a time when both public and private sector unions and the right to bargain collectively are under severe attack.
