Experts say Many Teachers Paying Out of Pocket for School Supplies – CBS New York
I shared this post from CBS News, posted by We Are Teachers with you earlier today. I’ve seen it shared all over Facebook, and have REALLY ENJOYED the comments.
We Are Teachers: Oh, but you already knew that. (so far 1,517 shares on We Are Teachers)
Florida Teachers Against Pay-For-Performance Salary/Pay Scales: Ya think?
ESSDACK: “I think we knew this already…”
Educents: Um..DUH! Tell us something we don’t already know.
InspirED Educators: BREAKING NEWS! Sure… What do the powers that be THINK happens when you cut school budgets to the bone and beyond? Teachers have always spent their own money, but we’re finding that teachers spending is now at unprecedented levels.
Follett Learning: But you already knew this…
Random comments I’ve seen:
Oh, yeah…This is “news”…Only to someone who lives in a vacuum and knows no teachers…
It took an expert to figure this out… I mean it’s only been how many years, decades, probably centuries …
and in other news… women have the right to vote…
This is so wrong!!! Teachers should be paid twice what they make. Teachers should also be treated with respect by both the students AND parents.
Thank God for our PTA!
Its not like they have a choice! Some of these parents will buy their liquor…cigarettes..and drugs before they will buy school supplies!
Well it’s “official” now. Experts said.
Oh really??? You don’t say! Tell me more, especially how you are going to fix it!
My personal favorite posted here on Penniless Teacher by Jenni:
I think needs to be added to the “Really? No sh!t.” file.
Every single employee of CBS should be ashamed of THIS story, starting at the top with Les Moonves!
