I read an article the other day stating that teachers are not necessarily motivated by money to switch schools and to work in at-risk schools. One researcher stated that a 48% pay increase would be needed to spur teachers to switch schools.
I’m one of them.
I would need a huge incentive to leave a community I love, a school in which I’m established, and
the students and parents with whom I’ve built bonds. I live comfortably, though not extravagantly, but I feel I have all I need. I’m happy here.
But I can be bought if the price is right. I’m ready to negotiate. 🙂
