The United States has become no place for teachers

2 posts / 0 new

According to research done by the Hamilton Project, our nation has lost more than 200,000 teaching jobs – and perhaps as many as 300,000 – since 20-09.

These layoffs are occurring at the state-level – where cash-strapped states don’t have enough money to fund education budgets, and Republican governors are pushing for tax cuts for the rich rather than investments in the future.

No nation has ever achieved prosperity by investing in more billionaires than more teachers.

And for good reason, too.
