Teachers around the United States are habitually paid less than they should rake in from having to deal with the discipline of students, teaching 20 or 30 young minds all at once, and working far more than 40 hours per week most weeks, just to grade papers and form quality lesson plans.
With such difficult responsibilities – not to mention that people earn far more money taking up less-challenging positions around every sector across the entirety of America – it simply doesn’t make much sense that adults trained to teach and be trusted with parents’ children.
Keeping all of this information in mind, why do public school teachers in the United States at all levels get paid peanuts? It doesn’t make any sense, whatsoever.
For the first time in a while, Oklahoma was one of the first states to kick off protests by its teachers and administrators employed by public schools in hopes of gaining more pay for its workforce across the entire state system.
Fortunately, Oklahoman teachers were able to end their protest – one that culminated in the collective group of Oklahoman public school teachers, ranging from those teachers that instruct preschool, all the way to the last class on one’s senior year in high school – after weeks of being outspoken and not once, at least those participating in it, not showing up to teach class.
The educators of Oklahoma are collectively happy after the $50 million hike set forth by the state’s congress earlier this week at a comfy $50 million.
