Stop the lies about teacher pay


It is basically a rolling

It is basically a rolling four year pay freeze. You get a bump and that is your salary for five years.

I'm a moderate Democrat.

That's the part

that needs much greater publicity and awareness. The inequities in raises for teachers with varying levels of experience are wrong. Ignoring the recent pay cuts over the past few years is disingenuous. Ignoring the fact that the raises don't even get teachers back to 2008 levels is sick.

But trying to hide the fact that they've actually specified that there shall be no more raises for the next 4 years is deplorable.
