Teacher compares lack of SCS salary increases to Hitler's teachings

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Shelby County Schools teachers are upset over the lack of salary increases.

SCS teachers set off fireworks at the school board meeting over pay issues. A number of teachers and education leaders argued their message at Tuesday night's board meeting. One even compared the situation to Hitler's teachings.

"According to Adolf Hitler, make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it and eventually they will believe it," one teacher said.

Teachers have not received a cost of living adjustment in the last four years, according to the president of the Memphis Shelby County Education Association.
