Update: VIDEO | Clay County Board Denies Teacher Pay Raises

FLEMING ISLAND, Fla. -- Clay County board members has voted down a contract that would have given its teachers a $500 pay raise to teachers with more than 27 years experience.

Members voted 4 to1 against ratifying the contract that 92 percent of its teachers voted for.

Many believed the raises were a done deal, since the teachers had already reached a tentative agreement with the board.

Seventh-grade teacher Helenda Feuerborn was in tears after the vote. "I just don't know how they say no to people who come in and do this every day from their heart", she said.

But the People's Tea Party stepped in and said the $1.7 million was too expensive for the county to do that.
