I hope it goes through, I'd LOVE to get that additional income to the libraries
I'm all for better education and I believe that teachers should be compensated fairly. But watch, that money will be gobbled up by the all the superintendents and their administration staff. We have superintendents in our area that are making 6 figure salaries. AND some teachers making less than $30,000 a year.
