Just as I thought. You are confusing your son's day with the day of those teachers.
I taught in FL, at the secondary level. My contracted work day was 7.5 hours - 8:15 to 3:45. I taught 3 different 2 hour blocks. Of course there was time between classes, time for the students to get to the next class. (That could have made my "teaching hours" not exactly 6 hours on paper by some measures, but close enough. Perhaps that technicality is what you are trying to get away with.) Lunch was only a half hour.
The standard contract in FL is 37.5 hours. Use any keyword search you want at Google - it's all over the place. Try
