Doug Ducey's proposal to raise teacher pay by 20 percent by 2020 has local educators cautiously optimistic, but it's still just a proposal.

The Department of Basic Education responded to a DA Parliamentary Question, saying that it would support the declaration of a minimum service level agreement for teachers by the ESC to ensure children are not left unsupervised during school hours. Paul Georges, union president, said the response from teachers and paraprofessionals has been very positive.
