….must be nice. Anything a teacher has is really temporary unless they can work long enough to have tenure…which might be going away anyway.
To all my friends in education,
Hang in there! It sucks to be us right now. Cuts get tighter, classes get bigger. The lucky few that find jobs have little security beyond their contracted year. But what we do matters. What we aim to do is one of the only things that can save education. Budget cuts, higher standards, tests, new management – none of that can save education. What we do each day in the classroom, that can. We can make a difference in the way we teach, love, and help our students grow, the rest is out of our hands.
Here’s to having a job next year.
My thoughts are with us all.
Keep fighting for your right to make a difference.
Keep filling out those applications.
And if you get a chance…write your state congressman and tell them to freaking do something.
