For one, I didn't say anything about the state's ability to
teach it's children,I think this state (which by the way isn't
capitalized!) has a very good governor who is constantly
improving the education for our children. I didn't bash New
Mexico, I bashed the substitute pay rate. How many people would
disagree that the pay rate is low? For your information, I
wasn't home schooled, why are you so bitter? Also, here are some
links to school districts in Iowa, with substitute pay rates:
After ten days in the same classroom,(in Iowa) substitute
teachers receive per diem of the teacher pay. Here, after 60
days substitutes get a per diem of 65% of the base pay salary.
When were you in Iowa? In the 90's? Get over it! Find some
positive aspect in your life, focus on that, and be happy.
