The Duval County School Board show their disconnect from teachers
I am just going to jump right to it.
Note: Fel Lee and Becki Couch turned down the rise and Ashley Smith-Juarez a multi millionaire who raised nearly 200 grand for her campaign isn’t sure if she will take it or not.
Last year school board members made 37,300 or what a first year teacher makes. This year several are accepting a 2800-dollar raise or a little less than what a 9th year teacher makes. A teacher would have to be on step 20 before they saw a raise approaching that much.
That first year teacher? They received a raise of 139 bucks.
I also wonder if those janitors who were forced to take a seven percent pay cut ever got it back.
Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.
