TEA Saves Jobs, Prevents Cuts to Teacher Salaries

Due to the severe recession, it is estimated that as many as 100,000 to 300,000 teachers nationally may lose their jobs as the 2010-2011 school year begins. But—due to TEA’s lobbying—the Tennessee General Assembly did not make cuts to personnel funded through the Basic Education Program (BEP). The bottom line is that many teachers will retain their positions because TEA was diligent in protecting BEP funding.

In addition, if some legislators had their way, thousands of current teachers could have lost their career ladder supplements. A very serious proposal would have funded career ladder supplements on a non-recurring basis. This means the state would have to “find” $35 million to keep career ladder supplements funded. Here’s the approximate number of career ladder teachers who would have been affected: Career Level I—26,166; Career Level II—1,735; Career Level III—2,717.

Are you one of these teachers? Then TEA—your Association—was the key to stopping a major cut to your personal income!
