DN you got it wrong. Teachers will not receive a raise as the legislature does
not fund social security and retirement for teachers as they do other public
employees. This is not an optional line item for districts. The 1% is not enough
to cover these costs so once again, no raise for teachers.
So what "surprise" legislation will sneak into the final days?
A budget that doesn't raise taxes or cut budgets? Holy smokes! I believe that's
called a "balanced" budget! We're a predominantly Republican state. How
on earth did our Legislature accomplish this? Could it be, they actually
understand the concept of not spending more than they take in? Well done ladies
