It's about time. Teachers have not gotten a raise since about 2008-9. The 3% that was given back when Tricky Rick Scott shafted state workers does not count. Teachers have been working without a planning period during the day for multiple years now. How many of you folks get a 22 minute lunch and no opportunity to even make a head call except for in that 22 minute lunch period daily? The raise was due last Fall and the SRCSB dragged around until the news media, through the teachers who DID the MATH and confronted the "leprechauns guarding the pot of gold at Canal St" , and low and behold now the school board wants to do something about it. It's sad that the school board won't act until the news media gets wind of things inappropriate and then they relent. Admin got three raises in the last two years....some in excess of 12k and they were begruding us our step raises for years of experience with sat evals.
What would be nice is if they would retroactively REPAY the teachers for the money that they should have been getting since the 15 Sept pay period through now.
