The Public Education system in Va and the nation is in a state of duress.
Long Term Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Chesapeake, Virginia – December 5, 2013
The Public Education system in Va and the nation is in a state of duress. The goal of producing critical thinkers has been subjugated by the governmental edict to produce and concentrate "education" on core-testing which, more and more, leaves less and less room to explore and cultivate the abstract thinking capacity in the minds of the student.
It can be depressing.
The long (10-13 hour school, grading, contacting parents) days lead to a rejuvination period of 75-80 days that run concurrently.
No compensations or benefits or job security in the public school part time as a substitute teacher.

School Bus Driver (Former Employee) – Great Bridge Blvd – November 9, 2017
Just say: too many Indians not enough chiefs! The staff at transportation was very rude to the drivers. There were never enough drivers on their buses. Always the same drivers were always taking off on mondays and / or Fridays and nothing was done about it. Because of how we were treated and talked to, drivers were always quitting like myself.
