The Mississippi Senate approved a $4,325 raise over three years for teachers, but a statewide strike is still planned for Monday, a union leader said. Jerry Caruthers, a spokesman for the 13,000-member Mississippi Assn. of Educators, said the strike is still on, but the plans could change if the raise is approved by the House, where it is scheduled for debate today. The Senate voted 41 to 11 to approve a $2,325 raise for teachers next year, backed up by $1,000 raises in each of the following two years.
