I noticed that here in Florida the pay for teachers seems amongst the lowest
in USA.
Yet the cost of living here is not as cheap as they say! So most teachers
work at night after school and come to school in the morning tired and
fatigued.
Due to the exhaustedness the teachers aren't able to give it their all and
the children get frustrated as well and the quality of education drops.
One brother is spending all our $$$ on missiles in Afghanistan while the
other brother tells us here in FLA. that the state has no money and cuts will
have to be made so teachers will now need a third job for Sundays and the
quality of education will sink lower and lower while the young people getting
out of college teach for a year or two and then end up quitting and tending
bar or serving tables and making much more $$$ <---what a shame!
Funny how the people in charge scratch their heads wondering why they can't
get quality teachers? The administrators are also in denial because they
don't realize that there is a crisis in America whereas children growing up
in minority areas, particularly black lower income (sorry if anyone is
offended by the truth) minority areas where the children don't behave and
have no interest in learning and are not able to adjust socially to the
institution of education, and all young white teachers have a story about
being discriminated against working in schools where whites are in the
minority. I say wake up America and support education not WAR!!!
