Lawrence teachers make case for wage, benefit boost

I have never had such a respect for a teacher until I observed many of them for the past 9 months. Many believe that they have the summers off, which is not entirely true. While they may have some time off, many are beginning to prep in late June/early July while also attending meetings and trying to create an itinerary for their students. It is incredible to see the amount of work they are responsible for. Not only are they responsible for the education in the classroom, they also have to take into consideration the problem behaviors and the extra attention that some students may need.

While this isn't the greatest time to be asking for a pay raise for licensed teachers, I believe they should be paid much more than they are given credit for. I feel especially bad for classified staff such as the paraeducators who make a whopping $9-$10/hr even with a degree. Bravo to the teachers and paras who help make a difference in the lives of our children!
