LETTER: What is the answer to teacher problem?

Dec. 21, 2013 @ 04:58 AM

To the Editor:

According to the newspapers and TV, the teachers are underpaid and receive less compensation in Lee County than the teachers in other areas. Our teachers have not received an increase in salary for six years. However, management and other personnel are leaving Lee County to work in other areas. It’s a shame!

New teachers hired ... leave after teaching for one year. Reason? Other areas offer better pay and compensation.

Everyone talks about this serious problem, but nothing is done!

What is the answer? Why?
