Missouri Teachers Stay Losing Salary

Horrific stat for this essential career as teaching clearly doesn't pay in the Heartland. Take a look:

Missouri almost dead last in ranking of teachers' starting salaries

COLUMBIA - A recent report says Missouri ranks 49th in average starting teacher salary. The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education says salary issues are one of the reasons fewer people are getting teaching certificates in the state. The average starting salary in Missouri is $31,842, nearly $7,000 less than the national average.

Public school teachers don't deserve any more than that!

Might explain why students hear in the heartland have the IQ of a amoeba.

$31k is starting cash. They get pension and retirement contributions, and full healthcare on top of that, estimated $15k. That's really a pretty good "starting" salary.

All they do is let students work on their Chromebooks nowadays. A very shitty profession to get into. Who the hell wants to play part-time parent if you're in a Title I school anyway?

If we raise teacers' salaries would be get to fire all the current teachers and hire better ones? If not, what would be the point of raising teachers' salaries?

They deserve more. They put up with a lot. They require college degrees and often buy their own supplies.
