(MSN)   With School set to start next week, Nevada still has a few teaching positions left to fill...like 3,000. It appears that low pay and turning the profession into a political punching bag have turned people off from choosing that career. Whodathunk?   (msn.com) divider line

And the GOP's solution will be to fill classrooms with non-licensed teachers who are readily available, like national guard troops or cops who've been placed on suspension for shooting black people or GOP officials awaiting trials for sex offenses. Then when no actual learning takes place they'll use this as more fodder for while public schools don't work and we should go to an all-charter or all-private model.

Republicans are going get their wish, destroy public schools and then not have anything to replace them with other than "homeschooling", which most people can't afford.

Don't be ridiculous! Homeschooling is free. You just have to plop the children down in front of a TV with Veggie Tales and Fox News channels. With any luck, they'll never learn to read, so their minds will remain unpolluted by reality.

The Jeffersonian idea of a publicly educated civic body has not really been on the GOP's platform for a while. It was in its death throes under Bush II. Trump's term double tapped it.

Taken with a grain of salt, the antiwork subreddit is filled with stories from ex-teachers who more often than not say things like 'i left teaching to be a bartender. I make more money, don't have to buy any supplies, and deal with less assholes'

You mean no wants to go to school at the cost of 30-100k plus, make 40k starting, and when Johnny is being a little shiat in class have the parents come in and yell at you?

There are all kinds of problems with a teaching career path and it isn't as much as a problem of the recent actions as you think of people like DeSantis (who's helping and not helping at the same time). The bodies haven't been in the pipeline for over a decade to replace the Boomers retiring who didn't face such high cost barriers (just like how we are short pilots now for the same reason). Like you couldn't get a teacher certification one state and go to another and have it honored. Even when they do something to address that, like Florida, they half ass it like Florida and say "you can get your cert for no cost now" but is limited mostly to vets. Florida also raised the starting wage to be one of the highest but failed to throw a bone to existing so a bunch that were still under quit and went to new districts which put the whole system into chaos.

Weak troll attempt...Nevada was 50.1%-47.7% for Biden in 2020.  That's not a blue state, that's a VERY purple state.

One of the less talked-about reasons for a lot of these NOWTWA issues: Teachers, like a lot of retail/restaurant positions, are tired of being treated like crap by the customers or, in the case of teachers, damned near everyone. Everyone wants to blame literally anyone else when kids don't learn when the parents are just letting the kids skate by and not try. And then, when they try nothing and are all out of ideas, it's the teacher's fault the kid doesn't want to learn to think for themselves and out come the (usually) figurative pitchforks and torches.

Maybe if the world had Drew's First Rule of Farkdom applied to them, we'd get back to somewhere more normal than all of this.

They've been trying to demonize public schools so parents would push for private schools, you know, kind of like the indigenous residences the Pope just apologized for the rape, abuse and deaths of the native children.

When I was a kid my elementary school was condemned so we did a year at the Catholic church which had classrooms. I don't know what it was but the public school teachers that taught there were absolutely brutal to the kids. Grown men beating on 9 year olds. What a bunch of @ssholes.

Of course, the kids were too ashamed/guilty feeling to tell their parents.

Yes, it turns out that Democrats aren't so keen on paying teachers a livable wage, either. Funny how the owner class always gets what it wants no matter who runs the government.
