Oct 13 - Florida teachers are tired of the low pay and are quitting -5,000 and going up
 

 
CNN)Florida's teacher shortage has worsened since the start of the school year, with vacancies for teachers surging to more than 5,000, according to updated data from the Florida Education a*sociation.

There are also more than 4,000 openings for other school staff positions, according to FEA President Andrew Spar.
The organization released its initial findings in August, but since the figures were so high, it recounted vacancies again in October, only to discover an increase. FEA's Spar took to TikTok on Sunday to publicize the staffing situation, saying the state had about 5,100 teacher positions open.

And she said pay is a "huge issue." The average salary for teachers in Florida ranks 49th in the nation, according to the FEA, more than $10,000 less than the national average, which was $65,090 for the 2020-21 school year, according to the National Education a*sociation.
"I would love to be making what my colleagues in states with an actual teaching budget, who are veteran teachers like me, are making," Robinson said. "That would be great, considering the insane hours I put in during this (pandemic) situation.
"Even at the best of times, teaching is challenging -- it's a challenge I love. But right now, it's brutal."

There is no forced injection, you just believe that because you read it on facebook. You either have to get vaccinated OR get tested weekly. You conspiracy morons have been taking a lot of L's lately.

school in America is on a rapid decline unless you have a bag to send to private school OR live in an affluent area

nah not true for everywhere

i can speak for the NYC funded community colleges (CUNY), once the vaccine was FDA approved they dropped the ability to show a negative test and made it so you have to get vaccinated if you want to take in person classes

I gotta give to some of these teachers. Its a very underappreciated job. Many bust their a*ses, get lousy a*s pay nd respect. And the sh*t is gonna get worse. I have many k-12 educators and they had a time in the school system smh. These younger generation teachers are gonna get hit harder.

They are at $10k less than national average but Florida is a relatively low cost of living state... They don't even pay state taxes so I bet after taxes they are right in line with national average.

The income of the median American household is $67k. That is a household so husband and wife. They are, by themselves, at $55k. And they also essentially get 3 months off. So that $55k is for 9 months of work. If you do summer school which is typically about a month, you get paid for that month.

Teaching sucks because you have to deal with annoying a*s kids, and increasing their pay to ~$65k instead of ~$55k won't change that reality.

This seems like bs in general. I think $55k is a fair wage when you consider their level of job security and the fact they get 3 months off work.
