Teacher raise likely, but how much?

The Galveston County Daily News: "“It will provide a pay raise for teachers,” he said, “and it will require school districts to direct at least 65 percent of state dollars toward instruction.”

For Rep. Craig Eiland, though, the raise might not be big enough. Supporters talk about raises of $2,500 a teacher, he said, but all he can say for sure is that teachers will get $500. About $1,000 is money the teachers were already getting to make up for increased insurance costs.

“They’re taking it from the right pocket and putting it in the left,” said Eiland, a Galveston Democrat."
