@orem parent"Teacher salaries and class size are the two things
that are shown over and over again to have a large effect on teacher job
satisfaction."Not surprising. Who doesn't like their job
more when they get more money for less work?However, neither teacher
salaries nor class size have any effect on students' academic performance.
That too has been shown over and over.
So glad to see the laws of supply and demand at work here in Utah. Demand is
very much surpassing the supply of teachers so this is a much needed step in the
right direction. Now let's keep this funding momentum going and see if we
can get out of last place in education funding.Teacher salaries and
class size are the two things that are shown over and over again to have a large
effect on teacher job satisfaction. Without satisfied teachers, our students
suffer. We owe it to our kids to provide a high quality teacher in every
classroom and we can't do that on what we are currently paying them!Great job local school boars for doing the right thing!
