Taxes Going Upj
Teachers Underpaid
Under Stanley Democratic role, In the throe
yenn 1915-1918, the eqnallced value of all prop
erty asveaxed for taxation In Kentucky hna In
rrvased the enormoiiH earn of 9927,278,483.00.
Durlnj the same period, the amount Alatrlbuted
by iff mate to the couDtiee to pay the alartna '
of school teachers haa only Increased tha pitiful
sum of $48,784.37.
Taxpayers, Thla la Your Bualneaa
The new tax law making this huce Increase In
taxes was passed to raise more money for ren.
end state expenses, to pay off old debts and to
rive mors money to the publio schools. If this
law has raised enough money to pay general ex
penses and to help pay off some old debts, why
has the school fund not received a proportionate
Increase for the education of your children T
FT!
Stanley O. K'a Pay Cut
In 1918 a Democratic legislature passed
law and It was approved by Governor Stanley,
March 18, 1018, cutting down the amount of
money for school teachers' salaries from 26
cents to 18 cents, and many teachers wero
forced to qnlt their Jobs altogether or to seek
positions In other states.
Tha School Teachara' Merry-Qo-Round
The records show that In 41 counties In Kentucky, the salaries of school teachers
were more in 1916 than In 1017, 1918 and 1919. They alto show that In 71 eonnttes tha
salaries were more In 1910 than In 1017 and 1918, This has forced hundreds of teach
ers to travel from one county to anothsr seeking better pay to meet the high coat of
living. In one county In Kentucky, out of 104 tearfiars la.it rear, only 23 returned this year.
In another county only seven out of 48 returned. In another county only 5 out of
09 returned. In one of the largest axd best counties of the state only one rural teacher
has not changed location within the past Are years.
Holding Up tha Teacbera' Pay
In the same month that Governor Stanley approved the law ratting down the teach
ts' salaries, the state owed the teachers for back pay, (04872.00. Three months later
this amount had jumped to $1,462,897.94, On June 80, this year, the state still owed the
teachers for back pay taft8.484.87. In 1917, the first month's salary was paid In October
after three and a half months of teaching. The final payment was not made until Au
gust, 1010, eight months after the close of the session. Last year a law was passed to
remedy this, but at that salaries are still running lata. In addition to having their sal
aries cut, the teachers nlao have their pay held up.
Cutting Down the School Year
Three months after Governor Stmsley signed
the bill cutting down the teacher pay, the
school year was cut from T months to 0 months.
The children were deprived of a whole month's
schooling. This year, the school year ending
June 80, 1920, was kept at 6 Months Instead
of being put back to 7 months, thus depriving
the children of another month's schooling.
Twelve months schooling la two years in place
of 14 months.
