Teachers that care, or don’t



I am not certain teachers care about class size and their friends who have been laid off. A teacher who joined Zionsville Community Schools five years ago and has taken no classes to advance his knowledge has received a 23-percent pay increase by the fifth year. Did you receive that level of pay increase during the last five years? If that same teacher took two classes a year and now has his master’s degree, he received a 42-percent pay increase by the fifth year. There is nothing that equates the increase to his ability or effectiveness in the classroom – just education and time of service. If the teachers really wanted smaller class sizes and no layoffs, they would have told ZCS to suspend its pay increases.
