BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The nearly $125 million plan to boost teacher pay in Idaho over the next five years won the governor’s stamp of approval. Under the new law, which Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter signed Thursday, rookie teacher pay would steadily increase to $37,000 a year by 2020. Over time, more experienced teachers will be able to qualify for higher pay of roughly $42,000 to $50,000 a year. Otter says passing the plan that had support from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle and all major stakeholders defined the 2015 legislative session as historic. The governor added that providing enough funding for the teacher pay law will be a top priority over the next five years.
