Atlanta, GA (AP) - The House has voiced support for a stipend for
those teachers who earned national board certification before the
state incentive was discontinued.

The resolution from state Rep. Earl Ehrhart passed 163-2 on Monday.

In an effort to strengthen its teaching ranks, Georgia offered educators who earned national board certification a 10 percent stipend for 10 years.

That stipend wad cut in half in 2009 and eliminated entirely in 2010.

As the state has wrestled with a budget shortfall it stopped funding the program.

Ehrhart said the state should live up the promise it made to educators who spent some three years earning the certification.
