ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- It's the first day back to school for Albuquerque Public Schools.


Students will be greeted by teachers who are getting a 6% pay increase.

The base salary for a teacher in New Mexico went from $36,000 to $41,000 annually.

Lawmakers believe the raise will help attract and retrain more teachers.

Prior to the school year, APS said it still had a need for special education teachers.
