Too many out of work teachers, so few opportunites to sub.
Pros: you can pick and choose which jobs to accept.
Cons: not many job opportunities come your way!
MESD is a great operation, they do a good job at training and helping teachers. The problem is that too many teachers have been laid off in the last five years. MESD hasn't accepted new substitutes for quite a while because they have so many! Until something changes within public education, many young teachers will end up leaving the profession.
