A raise would be great. But is it realistic?
Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker said the new law, which aims to reach the $40,000 salary minimum by 2023-24, will help address the teacher shortage.
The California Democrat has yet to roll out specifics.
“A walkout would be the last resort, but we want more money for education in the state, that means more money for supplies, more staff and pay raises so teachers will stay."
On average, teachers in West Virginia are some of the lowest paid in the U.S.
Deyshia Hargrave spoke out against the raise during a public comment portion at a school board meeting.
Teachers are getting paid less than other workers with college degrees.
