How much do you think Lawrence school teachers should make?
Asked at Checkers, 2300 La. on October 1, 2005
“Fifty thousand a year. They probably aren’t getting paid nearly enough, and they have a very important job.”
“I’d say around $30,000 to start, but I think it should increase quickly. If they get good results, their salary should go up to about $40,000 within five years.”
“I think they should start at $30,000, and it should be adjusted every year for the cost of living and inflation with eligibility for merit raises.”
“Twenty-five thousand to $30,000, because of all the stuff they have to put up with.”
