Have you guys seen this article?
The article begins...
"Every year, American schools pay more than $8.6 billion in bonuses to teachers with master's degrees, even though the idea that a higher degree makes a teacher more effective has been mostly debunked......"
Ok, fine. So they don't want to pay us then don't make us get the d***m degree. I don't know how it is in your state, but I've taught in NY and CT and they both REQUIRE an MA after a certain number of years. Why do we have to get the degree if it's worthless? I'm so tired of all the teacher bashing I read in the news. My local paper in particular is very anti-teacher and anti-union in general, so much so, I actually cancelled my subscription because I couldn't stand reading their drivel all the time. This article was from an AP feed, though.
