Good for the gander, good for the goose


The independent salary commission has approved an 11.2 percent pay raise for elected officials over the next two years.
 
Tell your legislators: what's good for the gander is good for the goose. All the reasons they got their raises apply to educators, too. The Legislature even has a comparable wage study for educators already completed. They should use it to provide professional competitive wages.

If you believe that our kids deserve highest quality educators in their schools, if you believe that educators deserve fair and reasonable compensation, based upon the requirements of the job and relevant economic indicators, then send a send a note reminding your legislators that what's good for the gander is good for the goose.
 
Educators deserve professional competitive pay -- 11.2 percent is a good place to start.
