Interns' raise doesn't make grade

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Teaching interns working in Cincinnati Public Schools will see an increase of roughly $2,000 in pay for the year, boosting their salary for the year to $6,000.

        That increase is several thousand dollars less than the $10,000 the 62 interns - who are fifth-year students at the University of Cincinnati - expected to receive.

        That has led several to take second jobs to supplement their incomes.

        Interns are responsible for teaching two classes, attending faculty meetings and all preparation required of full-time teachers. At the same time, they are taking two or three classes. The interns are paid from money slated for full-time teachers' salaries.

        Rick Beck, Cincinnati Federation of Teachers president, said the union was able to use salaries from two unfilled teaching positions to boost interns' pay.

        Mr. Beck said the union hopes to renegotiate a permanent funding structure that would pay in terns 50 percent of a starting teacher's salary, or about $15,000.

        The Board of Education's finance committee will take up the issue this week and will report to the full board on Monday.
