    Starting Salary of Teachers by State

    Food Stamp Eligibility Guidlines

    Of course, the size of the family affects the eligibility.  The real difficulty is when the teacher is the sole breadwinner and there are lots of mouths to feed.

    I didn't mean to say that all teachers are on food stamps, just that many barely scrape by and are not eligible, while others do qualify.

    Job insecurity is a much bigger issue, imo.  Sure, bad teachers should be fired. But I don't think they should be fired based on a test that most educators find a distraction from their real work of teaching critical thinking skills.

     Some school districts, facing budget cuts, are closing schools, so of course, staff also gets cut there too.
