PulsePoll: Can teachers wait three years for a pay raise?

Here's this week's PulsePoll from the Louisiana Federation of Teachers:

Governor Bobby Jindal appears satisfied that Louisiana teacher salaries may be approaching the Southern Regional Average. He will not support any bills to raise more state revenue.
Meanwhile, state education funding - the MFP - is frozen. It now depends on the infusion of federal stimulus dollars just to maintain current funding.
Given this financial situation, are you content to go without pay raises until Governor Jindal’s term ends in 2012?
