House Expected to Pass Education Budget with Four Percent Raise for Most Education Employees

The Alabama House of Representatives is expected to pass an education budget this week that will increase teachers and education workers by four percent a year……double the two percent raise requested by Alabama Governor Robert Bentley (R). The education received a favorable report from the House Ways and Means Education Committee on Wednesday and could be passed by the full House as early as Tuesday.

Education administrators making over $75,000 per year would see just a two percent raise. Education retirees will get no raise this year. Community college employees are also slated to receive the four percent raise.
