Throughout the country, teacher’s are protesting for a raise of pay in their salary and in Arizona, that could be possible. On Thursday, Governor Doug Ducey announced that he would raise teachers salary by 20% in 2020. This plan also promises to increase funding in Arizona schools. Teachers around Arizona are very glad to hear this news. The question to ask is that is this raise in pay high enough or should it be higher and Mrs.Harper, a teacher at Higley High School replied “I believe that a 20% raise in salary seems very fair.”.

 

Even though the teachers are happy about the pay raise, they’re not happy about how far away that day is. Teachers across Arizona voted for a statewide strike until further demands are met. Many teachers are demanding for the raise in salary immediately next year, but that still won’t be able to raise the national average. The average is about $52,950. Another question to ask is if the pay raise should come sooner, Mrs.Harper says “I believe that it should come in seperate parts throughout the year”. Starting Thursday, April 26th, the statewide strike will begin and not end until the demands are met to the full extent. Until then, most schools around Arizona will be closed.
