Maybe something as simple as better behaved children and parents might keep more teachers on the job. Baddest bus driver on the block. Most of them knew the pay wasn’t that great when they started to college.
The Baddest bus driver on the block collection!
I don’t think college kids have any idea of what a low salary is and what living on one is truly like until they are in it. I don’t know too many people that got through the trouble, expense, Baddest bus driver on the block and time of a degree and expected to live poor. more money is always nice but in talking to teachers, children who have some discipline and parents who support them beat out the money. Teaching is a job of love.
It’s more about respect for the position of teacher. They have the most important job in this world, and we treat them like a babysitter instead of a professional. I’m a Conservative but we need population control. It’s absurd. So many one parent homes. Need to ramp up abortion rates until we can figure something out here.
Get it and be cool with it!
A public school teacher near and dear to me got meager 1.something percent raise this year…after all the hooplah and acknowledgement that we’re in trouble with said shortage. Wow! What a brilliant strategy to solve the problem. A sub 2% raise. Asinine! Funny shirt. The “undisclosed” as of yet increase in insurance will include premium hikes, deductable increases, Co pay increase across the board and so on… So no one got a raise. They get a reduction in take home and buying power
Nobody wants to have to deal with all the bratty kids who have parents who take no accountability for their kids turning out that way. Its always the schools fault or the teachers fault or the bus drivers fault. Schools arent allowed to discipline anymore bc of fear of what will happen if they do. We have kids running the show instead of the adults. Teachers arent paid what they are worth. We give millions of dollars to athletes but cant pay the people who care for and teach the future of our country. You couldnt pay me a million dollars to do what these teachers have to do. And we wonder why there is shortage?
