The current Ceres teachers aren't getting a raise. Rather, they are slowly being compensated for the very large decrease in pay that they accepted several years ago. It's usually the people who have the least amount of knowledge about a teacher's job who have the loudest voices in the teacher-bashing. Get yourself educated on the facts, and start thanking your lucky stars that Ceres and the surrounding area is blessed with smart, hard- working, responsible and caring teachers.
