I think the “fluff” on NBC news was a crock. I have over 20 yrs experience. School districts everywhere want only the “newbies” that they can pay low salaries to and hope they burn out in a few years for a fresh supply. I predict that in the next 20 years, only about 10% of teachers everywhere will have more than 5 years experience, and the number of males will be non-existant. Which is quite coincidential, because 99% of school districts in my state (Arkansas) are run by men. We have let our own kind push us out of the field and hasten its decline! This site appears to me to be a recruiting ring mainly for new people. Forget us “Old Timers”!
