Introduced by Sen. Cory Booker (D-New Jersey), Raise Act is legislation that addresses a concern long plaguing districts: teacher pay. The bill would provide a refundable tax credit for elementary, secondary or early childhood educators in schools with a certain poverty rate, increase the tax deduction for the expenses of elementary and secondary school teachers, and provide funding for local educational agencies that maintain or increase teacher salaries. Public school teachers would be eligible for a tax credit up to $10,000 to offset the cost of school supplies. However, the bill currently has zero sponsors. It is way past time that this country shows teachers how much they are needed, valued, appreciated, and respected. It’s not enough for one or two states to increase teacher salary. Teacher pay should increase across the United States.
