Thank you for explaining why teachers never receive a decent pay raise. Many teachers, as well as the general public, don't understand how our paychecks are funded. We hear that we are getting a raise, but our paychecks never keep up with the cost of living, and they haven't for at least the past 15 years. Given our education, we should be getting a minimum of a 10% raise, if not 15%. No wonder teachers aren't anxious to go back into the classroom. Most of us aren't vaccinated, yet we are asked to risk our lives for what amounts to a 1% (not even a slap-in-the-face 2%) raise.
