Teachers are the job and economic engine of the state. Without them, we would not have great nurses, doctors, engineers, carpenters, computer programmers, actors or musicians.
The "Invest in Teachers" Act, SB807, would eliminate state income tax for experienced teachers, and help new teachers with a tax credit to help pay for training required to be a teacher.
The “Invest in Teachers” Act structurally addresses California’s teacher shortage by making it more affordable to become a teacher, and encouraging fully-trained teachers to return and remain in the classroom. With baby boomer retirement just around the corner, the shortage will be even worse. California needs tens of thousands of new teachers in the next 10 years, and the “Invest in Teachers” Act can help us get there.
