State lawmakers promise to increase education spending this year, but some educators still feel slighted.

Governor Nathan Deal's proposed budget does not include pay increases for the state's 2,000 nationally board certified teachers.

Dougherty County school officials say it won't have much of an impact here because most of the system's teachers are state certified.

"It's really not an issue here. There are so many funding issues for us coming out of a recovery from the financial loses we suffered in the last ten years. That that's not a key player," said R.D. Harter, the DCSS spokesperson.

After the recession started, the state cut raises for teachers who spent time and money on national board certification.
