Stimulus Check Coming For Teachers
Tennessee will be doling out $1,000 of hazard pay bonus to full-time teachers and $500 to part-time educators. They should expected to receive their checks before Jan. 1. The hazard pay came at the cost of an expected 2% raise that educators had been expecting in a bill passed in June.
Georgia has implemented a similar policy, giving teachers and principals $1,000 in stimulus cash for their work during the pandemic.
