TEACHERS WALK OUT
#21
I've seen schools that will buy products from a single vendor. They do not put out anything for bids. Paper, books, food, or any other thing they need. I'm not saying they all do but many do not have a regular purchaser that takes care of getting better deals. Some districts pool their resources and that would get better pricing. Little stupid things like that that would give schools the ability to pay better wages.
Some vendors hear the word "government" and think they have a key to the safe. I'm sure you've heard the term "government job" charge them high.
Some schools are on top of things others are not.
Another administration job that would probably pay more than being a teacher.

I favor a bonus based on looks.

As far as teachers brainwashing kids go, you hear that crap on the internet. It's not a rampant thing like anything else out there in the big wide internet when you figure how many people there are in the states it just gets blown out of proportion like anything else the political correct warriors deem unacceptable. If any stupid stuff goes down at my kids school I will be the first person on it, but so far nothing unacceptable has happened.

I don't think you're going to find a whole bunch of those brainwashing liberal teachers in Oklahoma, Kentucky, West Virginia, Arizona...
We have had a few loonies, but I guess nearly every state has.

Every community has something, much in the same way there is an asshole in every group of people.

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

[Image: arizonateacherstrike_getty_04271028.jpg?itok=otl0T3ei]

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.

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.
