Students across Hillsborough County are currently engaging in a district-wide protest concerning the questionable fate of teacher raises.

Recently, Hillsborough County revealed that teachers will not be receiving the $4,000 raise they are contracted to every three years due to budget issues. Following the release of this information, the school board is negotiating a resolution to the current issue under the ongoing contract renewal.

Starting early this morning, Gaither students began to walk out of their classes after the bell rang to start the class period. This then escalated to students running through the hallways and shouting phrases in protest, including “Pay our teachers”. Many of these actions have been put to rest by administration throughout the day.

Multiple schools have taken part in this protest, including Sickles High School, Jefferson High School, and Strawberry Crest High School.

The decision regarding teacher’s raises has yet to be made final. This is an ongoing story.
