GA Teachers to get raise

January 18, 2008

Albany - Governor Sonny Perdue is proposing a pay raise for Georgia's teachers. In the $21.4 Billion proposed budget, Perdue includes a 2.5% pay raise for all state employees, including teachers. That's not as much as teachers have gotten in previous years, and it won't necessarily cover the additional expense they'll incur with health insurance increases, but Westover High teacher Dee Barronton says any help is appreciated.

He said, "We realize that economic times aren't as good as they could be. Yes, we would like more, but we are appreciative of what we can get."

The teacher pay raises would go into effect September 1st. Teachers would also receive $100 gift cards to buy supplies for their classrooms.
