MNEA supports Metro budget proposal & higher pay for new teachers

Joining a growing list of supporters, the Metropolitan Nashville Education Association has pledged its support of Mayor Karl Dean’s 2013 budget proposal. Writing about the endorsement, MNEA President and middle school teacher Stephen Henry says:

While most of the buzz has centered on the $40,000 starting salary, the new compensation plan actually seeks to compress the total teacher salary schedule by reducing the number of steps, which is a significant modification and a good thing for teachers. Paying teachers well is a good way to attract and retain the best professionals to serve the children of Nashville.
