Lack of value placed on teaching staff
SUBSTITUTE TEACHER (Current Employee) – Frederick, MD – September 11, 2018
The system does not value it teaching staff, and grossly underpays it's professional substitute staff. Qualified teachers with graduate degrees that are hired on contract to teach entire semesters are paid as little as $14.25/hr, which is hardly a professional wage. Unlike regular teachers, long-term substitutes are not provided with paid prep days for exams or end-of-semester portfolios, yet are expected to administer them anyway.
