California Teachers Getting Bonuses From Covid Relief

A new report is stating that California schools could use covid relief to give teachers pay raises.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

At least two school districts in California may give teachers thousands of dollars of aid intended to safely reopen schools as bonuses, according to messages uncovered by the group Reopen California Schools and reported by the Daily Mail. One union even said teachers could use the money for a trip to Hawaii.

The Clovis Unified School District’s Employee Compensation Committee last week discussed giving teachers $6,000 bonuses using money allocated by Assembly Bill 86 to support school reopening efforts.

San Juan Unified schools in January discussed using those funds to pay 1 percent bonuses to all school staffers—even though the district will remain closed until early April. Under the proposed plan, San Juan schools’ food-service workers will each receive a $300 bonus. Teachers and the superintendent will receive $1,000 and $3,000 each, respectively.

The Dublin Teachers Association issued a memo asking the Dublin Unified School District to give teachers a $2,500 bonus and offered suggestions for how that money could be spent. The union’s ideas ranged from classroom technology and personal protective equipment to childcare and “an airplane trip to Hawaii when this is all over.”

The Dublin school district has 80-90% of its teachers vaccinated but the students will not return back to the classroom until Thursday. Great optics.

Giving them a bonus for not doing their jobs. The schools remain closed to in person education. What the heck is wrong! Those teachers already get their biden dollars, they don’t need more!

Stay at home and make more money—WELFARE for teachers? Schools need to be more local not more & more government involvement. P.T.A.’s worked wonders whereas the federal Department of Education , not so successful at the basics as their concerns are bent more towards re educating children’s minds that (they think) were corrupted by their families and churches.
