    What fun is that? I get what he is saying, and he is...say...85% right ;^)

    BTW I agree with what you were saying in the post that started all this, the problem I also see that unless we figure out something and fast we are in a lot of trouble. Right now my home district (the one my GF works in) has almost 150 openings for various positions from teachers to support staff. That is double the normal amount at this time. (almost triple) almost every district around us is in the same boat. This is untenable. Districts can't even seem to hire subs anymore.

    Let me put it this way...in 2007 I got my license to teach. I could not find a job to save my life. I couldn't even get an email reply telling me to buzz off let alone an interview or a job. I could sub but that wasn't even guaranteed to give me shifts. I had classmates who subbed in 4-5 districts just to work a couple times a week it was that tough. At this point if you call any district in the Twin Cities you can get on the sub list if you have an undergrad degree. (if you are licensed you get paid more but it is not required) Not only will you work every day, there is a solid chance you will get a long term sub position even if you aren't qualified. There are some schools and districts that are already behind the 8 ball trying to find subs to fill holes and the school year doesnt start for 3 weeks!

    There is a brain drain in public education going on the likes of which hasn't been seen in my lifetime. And it is not going away any time soon because between half the country thinking teachers are indoctrinating groomers and people in charge making it impossible to teach for a bevy of reasons (one day I will record the rants my girlfriend and her colleagues make about the Minnesota Department of Education and post it here...they are legendary) and people would rather do anything but teach.

    I hate sounding like Scooby, I truly do but this is very very bad and I am not sure there is a real solution anymore. Certain parts of our populace have been fighting for this scenario for 40 years and now we are here and there is no way out. Its Sophie's choice...both options suck.

    • Half the country doesn't think teachers are indoctrinating groomers.

      They just say it cause they think it will win them elections and own the libs. None of them actually believe this ****.

      Well, maybe a small percentage of Trumplandia actually believes. Anyone with half a functioning brain knows its just bull****. But doesn't stop them from saying it.

        I asked about subbing and filling my student teaching obligations concurrently. They never got back to me. They apparently have plenty of math teachers.

        • I see Oz recently had his Swiss cheesesteak incident when shopping for "crudite" at "Wegner's". Such a devoted resident of Pennsylvania. ;-)

          Also, in responding to a Fetterman troll Tweet, the snake oil salesman would like all of us to know that it doesn't matter that he actually owns 10 properties instead of the 2 he claimed, because at least he bought HIS properties with HIS money. Not a great look.

          • If you want peak “you get what you vote for” you should see Alaska. Not only do we have a teacher shortage, we have a bus driver shortage in the largest districts so bad that they have to rotate the services, meaning every single route will not be in service at some point. In Anchorage they had to tell parents to set up carpools. School started today.

            • In Minneapolis they pay parents a mediocre stipend to drive their kids to school because of the driver shortage.

              • Whitmer is only up five points on Tudor Dixon in a new poll from AARP. I didn’t even know they did polls, so no clue on bias or methodology, but that is way too close regardless.

                • I just saw a video of that lunatic that beat Liz Cheney in Wyoming. Sooo....did that lunatic win because the GQP wanted to get back at Cheney because she doesn't worship Trump and would have voted for a traffic cone over her, or do they actually think that lunatic is a good choice? I have relatives in Wyoming and if they voted for that...that...I can't even put into words what she is, I'll be so incredibly disappointed.

                    Dumpy is their king. They all do as they say. That's all there is to it.

                    Dump's endorsement carries the weight of the world on the R side of things and in order to receive it, one has to buy into all the conspiracy stuff along with the backwoods sexism, racism, theology, etc.

                    Hopefully we are at a point to where a candidate can not win a primary without Dump's endorsement, but that same endorsement is a kiss of death in a General Election.

                      There are so many intangibles with teaching that you don’t have in other professions. I think parents and kids need to accept you’re going to get more from some teachers than others regardless of qualifications. Having diversity of background/experience certainly isn’t a bad thing either.

                          But the Right seems to have caught the Dump Disease: "if I say something to further my interests then that thing is true." That's the definition of truth.

                          People mistake Dump when he lies thinking he's doing a bit, or he is lying the way spinmeisters do to further the interest of their client, or that he's actually dumb and believes a ridiculous thing. But that is missing the point. For Dump, reality *is* what he wants, full stop. Other humans learn there is a reality that you bump into and skin your knee on and that your will is not determinative of reality. Dump is a 70-year old infant who still lives in a world where what he wants is what is true. Anyone who disagrees with him is wrong, or a sucker, or trying to get him. Disagreement is not possible, metaphysically. The only other man on earth I can think of who might share Dump's identity of will and representation of the world is Kim Jong-un, but I am certain there are scattered others with that mental disorder.

                              Based on who is doing the poll...probably old people ;^)

                              The whackadoo who beat Cheney is a whole new breed of nuts. You just have to see a picture of her to know they should be doing wellness checks on her regularly.

                                Usually locking up a nomination gives you a bump that wears off.
