All they wanted was to give their students their all without having to work 3 jobs to stay above water. When their cries fell on deaf ears, these teachers did the only thing they could do that was best for their well being, find a job that offered them a living. One found a job as a teacher in China making three times as much as an American teacher. One is going to teach at a private school in Abu Dhabi. Others are changing their careers altogether, applying their education to a job where their education is appreciation and compensated. Can you blame any of them for finally realizing that if they don't take care of themselves, nobody else is going to? May they all be blessed on their path, and may we one day treat teachers in a way that respects what they contribute to our society.
