After teaching in Kentucky for two years in the 70s, I worked
for the phone company before teaching again in Louisiana and
then Texas. I am paid so much more than my Kentucky
counterparts, with safe-guards for free- time lunches and
planning time mandated by the legislature. I work in new
buildings with first-rate equipment. Teach in Kentucky again?
