Illinois Senate Sends Governor Teacher Pay Plan
(Springfield, IL) — Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner will decide if new teachers in the state should be paid more. The Illinois Senate yesterday approved a proposal to raise the starting pay for public school teachers to 40-thousand-dollars a year over the next five years. Democrats say the idea is to incentivize more college students to become teachers. But a number of statehouse Republicans say Illinois schools can’t afford to have lawmakers order them to pay more.
