Teacher salary settlements drop to record low in state
Education Minnesota, a union of 70,000 educators, estimates more than half of the state's teachers accepted salary freezes in one or both years of their new two-year contracts.
Salary increases averaged 0.77 percent in the first year, and 0.96 percent in the second year - the lowest settlements on record, according to Education Minnesota.
"Teachers are making historic sacrifices for the sake of their students," said Education Minnesota President Tom Dooher.
