    Teacher Who Served as Symbol of Jobs Measure Gets Laid Off

    Her district held on to the stimulus money and fired 14 teachers. She was actually laid off twice - first, because of budget, and second, because of 'enrollment' issues (her second job was as a sub - it pays slightly above minimum wage).


    They held on to that 7.6 million for the next year.
    I can't seem to find if she got a new job. The state also cut $350m from the education budget, so we're all suffering.

    What a joke. The US wants Bentley educations at Saturn prices. Not only are we grossly underpaid and freakishly overworked, we're apparently not needed and in demand at the same time. :cuckoo: Conservatives and lefties (that's you, Obama the Education Killer) both say that teachers should get merit pay (a justification for our low salaries) but it doesn't work.

    Stimulus funds running out; teacher jobs in jeopardy


    Obama is pretty anti-teacher, but I doubt teachers associations will stick up to him. They don't want 'the alternative'.
