Although we’ve posted parts of this before yet it is used here only as a reminder and a prep for the new development of that crisis since nothing has been changed. It only moved to the worst: That was the Atlantic magazine in 2016:
Substitute teaching has to be education’s toughest job. I’m a veteran teacher, and I won’t do it; it’s just too hard. The role magnifies the profession’s biggest challenges—the low pay, the insufficient time to plan, the ordeals of classroom management—into an experience that borders on soul-crushing. At the same time, the job drains teaching of its chief joy: sustained, meaningful relationships with students. Yet in 2014, some 623,000 Americans answered school districts’ early-morning calls to take on this daunting task.
Now in 2019, the number in CA is tripled. Sub-teachers can hardly live like a human being. It is said that they are being foolish when they accept a job hoping that it would turn out one day into a real teacher.
Although many of these sub-teachers are higher in qualifications than the teachers in schools who many of them happen to be, in reality, teachers assistants only graduates of high-school, or 2 yrs college. They are not even qualified like someone with a master degree in education or a PH.D. In class management, but they were able to find the port which took them to the job.
