Annual Pay Increases for Teachers Could Be Standardized


Two Oregon lawmakers; a Republican and a Democrat, are pushing a proposal to set annual pay increases for teachers. Representative Mark Johnson says it requires the Legislature to tell school districts if they must provide raises up to five percent and no less than zero. Supporters say they want to end a bad cycle of heavy hiring when the economy is good and heavy lay-offs during recession. Teachers' Unions oppose the bill, arguing it sets limits on collective bargaining. Another public hearing will be held.
