Here's a great story about what it is like to be a teacher today. It's a long read, but well worth the effort. Particularly startling are the numbers about how many teachers leave the profession, how many have second jobs and that the average amount of out-of-pocket expenses paid by teachers for schoolroom supplies is $479!
Let's elect people to our state legislature that truly support public school education and don't simply put that they are "Pro-Education" on their signs and literature.
