Educators, Taxpayers, Getting the Squeeze

Even with a state-mandated 1 percent raise this year and a 2 percent raise next year, a teacher nearing her 30th year in Paducah Public Schools will make only about $6 more a month than she made five years ago.

While all Kentucky public school teachers will soon get a raise for a second year in a row, they will also all have to put .75 percent more a month into their retirement funds. Each year for the past five years, teachers have been required to put a higher percentage of their pay into retirement.

Paducah Superintendent Donald Shively did the math one day after he got to thinking about raises and retirement costs in the same moment. He found that with teacher's mandated retirement pay-in going from 10.35 percent in 2011-12 to 12.855 percent in 2015-16, a 30th year teacher will be paying $628.81 a month into retirement. That eats significantly into whatever gains might be made with a raise.
