Springfield teachers get 2.3 percent raise

Springfield teachers will be getting a 2.3 percent pay increase as of Friday, which is the start of the new fiscal year.    


  1. Brace yourselves for 'must be nice not to work in the summer' comments.

  2. What is the total increase when the 2.3 percent is added to their annual step increase?

  3. Considering the CPI rose about 2.2% in the last year our teachers get to pocket an additional .1% for the last year of service, while shouldering 4 to 8 years of college debt because the federal government requires it to be a public school teacher (no child left behind). Of course retirees got a bigger shaft and got no COLA for this year because the federal government can't get their act together. Neither political party works for the interests of "We The People" anymore and simply oppose each other on just about everything.

  4. And that money will come from? You guessed it! Dig deeper taxpayers. Give more of what you have and/or earn.

  5. It is probably regarded as a COL cover. Reasonable. I don't expect the SSA to do the same for me.


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
