Delaware Joint Finance Committee Approves Step Increases For Teachers

The Delaware Joint Finance Committee approved a motion to approve step increases for Delaware teachers.  This item in the Delaware budget was on the chopping block, but luckily the JFC voted wisely on this motion.  While the increases vary based on years of  experience and levels of education (i.e. bachelors, masters, etc.), it averages around $500 a year for the average teachers.

Congratulations Delaware Teachers!

I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!

  1. I believe the aggregate total to the tax payers for these step increases ~$35M to a State that is out of our tax money. Tax, toll and fee is not the answer to irresponsible governance by the legislature.

    1. $9 million out of a $4 billion dollar budget. That $9 million will be divided among 8,000 teachers.

      DoE asked for $7.5 million to continue Race to the Top. $1.5 million was set to go to only 10 people. Perspective, Will Mann. It matters.
