MIAMI - JUNE 16: English teacher Radka Tomasek speaks to the class at the English Center June 16, 2006 in Miami, Florida. The school holds adult education classes that include English language classes for people who have immigrated to the United States. U.S. President George W. Bush recently said, ?Part of the greatness of America is that we've been able to help assimilate people into our society... And part of that assimilation process is English. I believe this: If you learn English, and you're a hard worker, and you have a dream, you have the capacity from going from picking crops to owning the store, or from sweeping office floors to being an office manager.?

Good news for Charlotte teachers. If anyone deserves a raise, it’s teachers and on Thursday morning, they got one.

After a meeting with the The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education, salary increases for several positions were approved.

The district said that all raises will be retroactive to July 1, and the retroactive amounts will be paid by Jan. 31.

CMS officials write,

“The Board’s action will put in place step increases (set by state salary schedules) and an increase in the local supplement for teachers and certified staff. It will also give increases to principals and assistant principals.”

Employees will get a 3% raise, and hourly employees’ pay will go up to $13.22 an hour.
