Making sure teachers who do extra work reap the benefits of that extra work takes center stage in the House against the backdrop of an education rally at the Capitol. A day devoted to education issues at the Capitol with a rally outside, then inside, the House discussing the Career Ladder for teachers. Representative Brad Lager of Maryville sponsors a bill that would separate the Career Ladder from the school funding formula, so it can be fully funded even when the formula isn’t. The Career Ladder provides financial incentives for teachers to run extra curricular activities. The problem, says Representative Maynard Wallace of Thornfield, is with the funding formula not fully funded, the teachers haven’t gotten the pay promised. The House has just begun discussion of the bill.
