Teacher And Local Union Official Gets $103K/Year, Says State Should Give Teachers More

The state's largest teachers union published a Feb. 16 article in which it advocated spending more federal COVID relief money on teachers.

“Educators had seen pay and benefits stagnate as mandates, workloads, expectations and costs-of-living increased,” the Michigan Education Association claimed in the article.

“I’m concerned about our members right now and what they’re dealing with every day,” said Bill Dyer, a teacher with the South Redford Public School district, and president of the local teachers union. “And looking down the road, I’m concerned for the teaching profession in general.”

Dyer’s gross pay was $103,359 in 2020-21.
