Okla. lawmaker proposes restoring NBCT bonuses

01/11/2012 | Tulsa World (Okla.)

Sen. Jim Wilson (D-Okla.) is seeking to generate about $17 million in revenue to restore bonuses for the state's National Board Certified Teachers. His plan would apply a state sales tax on newspaper sales, which he says will generate enough to cover the bonuses. "The state made an agreement to pay teachers $5,000 per year if they became nationally board certified," Wilson said. "We have a moral obligation to these outstanding, hardworking individuals to give them the bonuses they were promised."
