We want your comments.
Gov. John Bel Edwards’ plans to unveil his executive budget with $1,000 pay raises for teachers.
Another part of the governor’s push is $500 pay raises for support workers, including cafeteria workers, school bus drivers, paraprofessionals and teacher aides.
Budget spats could turn the pay raise into a onetime supplemental appropriation.
We are asking teachers in Natchitoches Parish to voice their opinions, concerns, support, etc. on the issue. Simply e-mail Juanice Gray at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Facebook messenger comments also welcome)
We welcome comments from teacher union and teacher organization representatives.
Deadline is Tuesday, Jan. 15.
