Arizona Teachers End Walkout

Arizona Teachers End Walkout




Arizona Governor Doug Ducey signed a plan Thursday to give teachers a 20% pay raise; ending their six-day walkout after a dramatic all-night legislative session and sending a majority of the states one million public school students back to the classroom.  Ducey's signature awarded the teachers a 9% pay raise in the fall and another 5% in each of the next two years.  The 20% always included a one percent pay raise from last year.  Teachers didn't receive everything they hoped to achieve during the all-night legislative session but they won substantial gains from reluctant lawmakers.  Ducey stated the teachers had "earned" the raise and the legislation session was a win for both teachers and students.  The pay increases will cost about $300 million from the coming year along.  Click on Breitbart.com to read the remainder of the story.
