The Idaho Senate recently announced that, because it’s so important to make improvements in math and science education, they’ll be giving out bonuses to attract qualified educators to the state. Yay Idaho! But they also announced that the pay increase will be a mere 3.75%. The average starting salary for an Idaho teacher is $30,000, so that’s a raise of just over $100 a month. The big kicker: Teachers won’t even be eligible for the bonus until they’ve been working in the state for five years. Seriously? Ya think that’s the way to lure teachers to Boise? Boo, Idaho. —Megan Miller
