A Sarasota school speech pathologist asking for a statewide teaching bonus has earned support from an administrative judge.
Cordelia Brown works at Brentwood Elementary School and scored in the top 20th percentile when she took her SAT test.
Even so, the district denied her eligibility for a bonus from the state's "Best and Brightest" program, saying she wasn't a classroom teacher.
These bonuses are awarded on the basis of college admissions results.
Brown says one of the reasons she moved to Florida was because of the state's scholarship program.
