    college?  What state do you live in , if you are ok with telling us? I was wondering because in my state, public school teachers still make more than a lot of associate professors at colleges around here and they make a lot more than private sector educators of any kind.

    I was offered a job in the private sector.  It's an entry level position.  Amazingly, it still means I'll make more than I do now, even with 19 years experience and a Master's Degree in Poli Sci.
    I was curious because in my state, teachers still earn a better salary and workers a better salary if they are public and/or state employees. That of course will change if we do not get a Democratic governor again here soon.

    •  My new job is not in education (0+ / 0-)
      •  Ok, now I understand and that makes sense as (0+ / 0-)

        here I thought it was in private sector educational job of some sort.  The pay for private schools is just awful, i tried that years ago. I loved working in adult education but that also paid considerably less than public school teaching.

        But private sector outside of education, that explains it and I wish you the very best. I hope you like and enjoy your new job. Best wishes !
