Governor Rauner Vetoes Pay Hike For New Teachers
(Springfield, IL) — New teachers in Illinois will have to settle for an average salary of just 39-thousand-dollars a year. Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner yesterday vetoed a plan that would have paid new teachers across the state 40-thousand-dollars a year. The governor said a state-mandated minimum pay schedule is not the best way to pay teachers in the state. Some of Illinois’ smaller schools had said they feared the new requirement would put them in a tight spot.
