Governor John Bel Edwards says his top priority next year is to increase funding for public education and secure a $1,000 teacher pay raise. Edwards made the statement during his monthly "Ask the Governor Show."
"I also want to make sure that we have a $500 raise to support workers, whether they are cafeteria workers, janitors or bus drivers," said Edwards.

A hubbub is brewing over money in the newly approved state budget for teacher pay bonuses, and who will get them. Louisiana Federation of Teachers president Steve Monaghan says word has come down from the House Democratic Caucus that the Department of Education is telling districts that those bonuses must be tied to the new evaluation program for teachers--which is currently being "tweaked" to correct flaws.
