I just read that public school teachers in Kentucky do not receive Social Security benefits. How can that be?
Kentucky's public school teachers are the only government employees in Kentucky who, by state law, are forbidden to participate in the federal Social Security system. Instead, the teachers and the state contribute jointly, on a 50-50 basis, to the Kentucky Teachers' Retirement System.

And their "retirement system" is a joke. You have to work in KY public schools (and ONLY KY schools) for a minimum of 27 years to be eligible. 27 years is far beyond what their average tenure is. The best estimate I could find is just over half of the teachers hired are still in the same school two years later.

That is completely fucked up on a few levels.

I can't help but be curious why anyone would teach there.

That's their "hometown" ? Afraid to move? IDK but only stupid people would stay for the punishment. That is if it's really that bad.

Arizona

Teachers working in the Grand Canyon State should be proud.

They did not get everything they were demanding during their week-long walkout, but they got a well-deserved 20% raise and an additional $138 million in school funding.

Like the other four states that have seen teacher uprisings this year, Arizona’s schools have lost a significant amount of state funding since the recession, when states were forced to cut budgets across the board.

The state did little to restore funding to schools after the economy recovered, and Arizona enacted a corporate tax cut that continued to deplete school revenue.

When adjusted for inflation, Arizona cut total state per-pupil funding by 37 percent between 2008 and 2015, more than any other state. That led to relatively low teacher salaries, crumbling school buildings and the elimination of free full-day kindergarten in some districts.

The kids didn't mind missing finals either. hah Teachers were really getting screwed here though. I'm happy they at least got something out of this. The reported average salary of 60k per year was off by about 38k according to a few friends I have in TUSD and AMPHI. The ONLY teachers making even close to 60K a year were teaching before most of the teachers today were born. Also, we had a naked guy on a bicycle riding around town with a "Red for Ed" sign on a trailer behind his bike. For whatever reason that guy was really popular with the ladies in the protests.

Wanting to be a teacher must be a calling. I've read many of them say it's rewarding but it often appears to be a struggle as well. Teachers deserve to have the resources they need in order to teach. They shouldn't have to cover the cost of things with their own money and they deserve to be well compensated.

RE: TEACHERS WALK OUT

Does this stuff make the summer vaca shorter? I know that legally kids have to be in school a certain number of days so this stuff must make the last day of school sometimes into July, depending on how long they were on strike.
