Future Teachers Rebuild Outdoor Classroom in Nashville

Tennessee’s future teachers took school improvement into their own hands with a first annual service project at John Early Middle School in Nashville on Friday, Sept. 25.

“Student TEA members from every part of our state gathered at John Early Middle School to make over an outdoor classroom,” said STEA President Raymond Boyd. “While some people talk about improving teaching and learning conditions at schools, we’re doing something about it.”

Getting all state money into paychecks

The governor’s initial budget unveiled on March 4 has $71.3 million in salary increases for “teachers and other positions funded through the BEP formula for next year.” It’s a clear statement what the administration believes should happen. However, in the very next line, the governor budget recognizes a problem TEA has been battling for the past several years.   

“The amount of the salary increases will depend on each LEA’s salary schedule and structure, but if applied across-the-board, this would be a 2.5% salary increase.”
