if you are one of the few people who are lucky enough to have a job at a public school, quit whining about pay, the governor, OGTs, etc.

there are lots of us who have paid our dues for years- subbing, working in exploitative charter schools etc- and many of us would give our right arms for your jobs. be grateful for your job. after 6 years of "dues-paying",and a master's degree i still cannot get a job. most of my colleagues in similar situations have left the profession for this reason. i spend my days working for 10 bucks an hour in retail and would give anything to teach. so if you arent happy with the state of education then leave and make room for the droves of us who want and would appreciate your job.
