We’ve all seen the headlines about teachers leaving their profession in droves over the last two years. “Highly qualified teachers and administrators will find other professions that not only pay better but also publicly value their skill sets and do not subject them to constant abasement,” says an instructional specialist writing for the Hechinger Report.
Schools continue to be at an unfortunate impasse: “Qualified teachers will disappear, and in their place instruction will be conducted either by less experienced teachers or by substitutes. Students will suffer, and not just academically; the revolving door of adults circulating through classrooms will increase the social and emotional challenges for students who need stable teachers to rely on.”
We can all agree that our kids need strong, passionate individuals to teach them now more than ever. Thankfully, students and parents can look in and out of school for these people. Turn your passion for education into a lucrative business with Gideon.
