The only raises teachers in Washington State may see for the next two years will be kids raising their hands.

The state Senate passed a measure on a 25-23 vote Friday night that suspends cost-of-living raises for teachers over the next two years, which now goes to Governor Inslee for his signature.

KNDO reports the cost-of-living raises would be suspended through mid-2015 for school district employees, community and technical college academic employees and classified employees at technical colleges.

The measure saves the state nearly $330 million and is needed to implement the newly agreed upon budget deal between the House and Senate.
