I love my rural district, and would choose it any day over
the big suburban schools. I do, however, wish there wasn't
such a gap in pay between where I am and 20 miles away in
suburbia. Doing the same job I am now with the same
qualifications, I would make $20,000 more a couple school
districts over. It's a harsh reality, and though I AM
happy, the knowledge of the pay gap is a big pill to swallow.
I would like to see some equality in pay come out of this
whole situation. What's it like in the medical industry?
Do nurses at Grant Medical Center get paid far less than
nurses at Mount Carmel East?
The only other comments I keep seeing on other boards and in
the news reaction to Strickland's speech center on how he
plans to ascertain the money to fund all these initiatives.
It should be interesting to watch the next few years unfold!
