Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris has made the bold campaign promise of raising teacher salaries to the level they “deserve.”
Sen. Harris made the promise on Twitter, where she was responding to a USA Today op-ed from a Colorado school teacher, who wrote that to make ends meet, she must occasionally sleep in her car when she rents out her apartment for extra cash.
Dana, a CO teacher, would sometimes rent her apartment and sleep in her car just to make ends meet. It’s infuriating what our teachers must sacrifice just to survive. When I’m president, teachers will get the raise they deserve.
