According to Thursday's Martinsville Bulletin, Henry County Public Schools rank 121st and the Martinsville City Schools rank 117th among the public school systems in the Commonwealth of Virginia in teacher pay. Charles Preston and Pam Heath, county and city school personnel directors respectively, say that low teacher pay is one the main problems they face in trying to recruit new teachers to the area. With the continuation of a declining tax base in both the county and city that problem may continue.

The Henry County Public Schools are considering raising the price of student school lunches by as much as 15 cents to help pay for a teacher raise next school year. Parents who are unemployed may just have to dig for more money.

Bluedevil is underinformed and just plain wrong. Monies from the lunch program are used just for meals. Raises for teachers would not involve those monies. Please do some research before you post a lie like this.
