ABSTRACT
The article reports on the inflow of state funds for education to increase teacher salaries that has created resentment to contract negotiations of teachers in Illinois. The reallocation of the money from the salaries to other school purposes, has increased tension in several school districts. In addition, the state funds would make school districts make-up for the long-delayed salary adjustments but there has not been an automatic allotment for the salary increase.
