  • House speaker calls teacher pay proposal political

    House Speaker Tim Moore, R-Cleveland, is speaking out against calls for 10 percent across-the-board raises for the state's teachers, calling the proposal unrealistic and unfair to other state employees. A 10 percent raise for all public school teachers would cost about $540 million, Moore said, requiring state budget writers to raise additional revenues of at least $250 million. A better plan is to come up with a realistic number for raises for teachers and all other state employees, and to dedicate additional funding to attract and keep teachers of science, technology, engineering and math, Moore said.
