Education Funding
MORE STUDENTS! LESS PLANNING TIME! LESS MONEY!
That seems to be the reality of public school teaching these days. Teachers are not oblivious to the economic situation gripping the nation. What they are angry about is always being the last considered when the economy is good, yet the first to feel cuts when the economy is bad.
In an industrialized, technologically-advanced society, a good education is a necessity. However, when it comes to adequately compensating teachers, the public turns its back. Nobody wants to pay higher taxes, including teachers, (Yes, teachers pay taxes too). However, failure to fund education at sufficient levels only hurts the future prosperity of country.
We cannot keep expecting teachers to do more with less – less time, less money. It is past time to find a better, recession-proof way to fund education that is not tied to fluctuating property taxes and the whim of politicians.
