America’s heroes on the battlefield are now taking on saving the classroom.

As the Sunshine State struggles to fill teacher vacancies in its schools, Florida is leaning on military veterans to help fill jobs instructing students.

Florida Education Commissioner Manny Diaz joined “Fox & Friends” on Friday to share that the bill to implement the program has passed and that 83 submitted applications have come in already.

“This is a great way for us to be able to have our veterans, in this veteran-friendly state, to step up to the plate,” he said, referring to the need in classrooms today.

Qualifying veterans will have served at least four years in the military, with an honorable discharge.

Candidates must also have at least 60 college credits under their belt and have attained a 2.5 G or higher.

They must also have passed the Florida subject-area examination.

Veteran Al Pelosi, of East Islip, NY, is shown honoring veterans by walking some 3 miles with an American flag on the trail along Sunrise Highway near Connecticut River State Park Preserve in Oakdale, New York, last November.  Veterans are applying to help fill teacher vacancies in Florida classrooms this year.

These requirements will allow veterans to work with a temporary teaching certificate while staying on track to earn a bachelor’s degree, Diaz explained.

“We’re a proud military state,” said Diaz.

“The structure and skills that [the veterans] have will be valuable in the classroom.”

Veterans will also be ired with a mentor teacher to help them master the art of teaching.

Florida Education Commissioner Manny Diaz joined "Fox and Friends" on Friday, July 29, 2022, to discuss the program that allows veterans to help fill teacher vacancies in the classroom this year.

Diaz emphasized that so-called soft skills learned in the military — such as structure and time management — will be a great benefit to America’s kids.

“This is important in our classrooms because we’re missing some of that with today’s younger generation,” he said.
