Social Activism ,Political Commetary and Solutions
AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Across New Mexico, the State’s National Guard is substituting for teachers. The kids are happier & getting an education in School. The State has agreed to a 20% raise for teachers, known to be underpaid and stressed out. Many did not survive the Pandemic. In other States, like Oklahoma, they’re using civil servants, like the Police. We’ve read Oklahoma’s teachers were underpaid significantly. It’s not surprising there are teacher shortages. Many are fearful of the Police taking these jobs, however, when mixing with kids, perhaps stigmas are erased on all sides. Besides paying teachers more money, a wage commensurate with their responsibility. It may be a good time to employ universal service for all kids for 2 years. It would eliminate class barriers and help the Country heal? Something new to consider, while we heal and retrain.
