Gov. John Bel Edwards Supports Increase In Teacher Pay

BESE voted Tuesday to request a $1,000 pay raise for public school teachers and a $39 million increase in state aid for public schools.

The proposal, which faces a final vote on Wednesday, will be sent to the Louisiana Legislature for the two-month session that begins on April 8.

Lawmakers will be able to accept or reject the plan but cannot change it.
