The lawmakers in the state are giving over 170,000 elementary and secondary teachers a bonus worth $2,000.

In addition, over 100,000 employees that work for the state and university will see a $5,000 raise.

The state budget set aside $800,000 for the pay raise.

The goal is to help retain teachers, as the turnover rate remains high and current employees become burnt out.

55% of teachers said they plan to retire earlier than originally planned because of the pandemic.

Who will see the $2,000 bonus?

Teachers between kindergarten and 12th grade in Georgia can expect the $2,000 bonus.
