The Columbus Board of Education this week unanimously approved pay raises for substitute teachers, amid a widespread shortage.  

Rates range from 18 dollars per hour for general susbtitutes on short term assignments, to 34 dollars per hour for substitutes with a teaching license on long-term assignments.  It's the first time the district has raised the wages of substitutes in three years, and the rates are now among the highest in central Ohio.
