Why is it hard to create for a fair and adequate compensation system for educators?
Rewarding Teaching
Not this
We have tried....
- merit pay - years of service - wage pressure - mandating degrees &  certifications - salary schedule - leadership = leaving the    classroom
But that
"Teaching is not a lost art, but the regard for it is a lost tradition." - Jacques Barzun
Does not allow for hybrid roles
System rigidity means educators are stuck in the same traditional time & space loops as they were 50-60+ years ago
Teacher roles are very much regimented and "silo"-ed. Individual practices but lockstep solidarity based on system steps are the norm.
The system fails to incentivize teacher development & leadership
So What
Is Wrong With Our System?
