From Saturday's Metro section:
The Fairfax County School Board approved a 67 percent raise for board members Thursday night, said schools spokeswoman Mary Shaw.
As of January, the salary will be $20,000 a year for a member and $22,000 for the chairman. The increase from the current $12,000 board salary will be the first in eight years.
