About 900 native-English-speaking teachers employed under NET schemes will get no pay rise in the new school year because of the poor economy. The Education Bureau told Legco yesterday a deal had been reached last month with the teachers' association, which said it was an unsuitable time to review pay. The NET teachers are paid on par with locals but get a monthly allowance.
