Local Senator Says Teacher Pay Freezes Could Help Eliminate Layoffs


Most Iowans are worried about the future of Iowa’s budget and many have concerns about funding for education. Senator Paul McKinley says he feels our teachers should take a pay freeze to help decrease the number of layoffs. McKinley says nearly all Iowa teachers will get a $5,000 pay raise this year and if they were willing to sacrifice that increase, it could help fund education and prevent several teacher layoffs.
