    It should be stated that when the wages paid are below standard that it wouldn't take much of an increase to completely mislead the statistics. The statement in paragraph II speaks to this. 16th out of 50 sure says how well our teachers are paid. I am amazed the school districts are able to maintain ample cadre to fill the jobs.

    10 percent could be one hell of a raise, but not if you are only making one dollar.
