A new infographic was released as part of the celebration for Teacher Appreciation Week, which ends today. The infographic was put together by USC Rossier Online, which is USC School of Education’s online presence which offers online courses, discussions, and student services.
Take a look and see if you learn something new today! For example, did you know that 51% of teachers work on Sundays compared to 30% of other full-time professionals? 17% of teachers hold more than one job and teachers’ weekly wages have only risen 0.8% in the past 16 years (compared to average 12% in other professional fields).
Unfortunately, low pay is still the deciding factor for teachers who leave the field before retirement. How can we better utilize educational funding and compensate teachers (through appreciation and finances) for the important work that they are doing?
