    Two frontline workers fighting against coronavirus in China get married over a video call
    South China Morning Post
    A nurse and a firefighter in southwestern China’s Sichuan province, who both stayed on the frontlines to battle against the coronavirus outbreak, organised their wedding over a video call. They held this special ceremony on the day that their wedding would have taken place. It was affected due to the viral outbreak.

    "The approved contract guarantees teachers average base salary increases for each of the next three years (1% for 2019-20, 1.25% for 2020-21, and 1.5% for 2021-22). . ." :vbrolleyes:

    Tragic. When adjusted properly, they're making less and less as each year passes. And people wonder why public education is total $h1t in this country. We can start changing that by starting to actually pay teachers.

    And yet you know it's not about the money we as taxpayers pay per student. It's how much gets to the teachers. Adding to the problem is that no one wants to work in an impoverished area, where the monies are even less because they're tied to property taxes. A previous gf was an elementary school teacher. The first years are super tough because not only do you don't get paid well, you have to create and buy a lot of materials for the class with your own money. After you establish this, you can reuse a lot of it so not as bad down the road. I also know enough teachers who kind of game the system. Work with special needs kids and you get more money. Drivers ed is considered hazardous so higher pay here. Then as much overtime as possible for the last two years, as retirement is based on income from the last two.

    Good on them. But what sort of picture does this sales pitch paint for new teachers or those considering the profession? :confused:
