Arizona Teachers Protest Against Pay

Fair societies and their respective governments have long allowed citizens, businesses, and other classes of people and groups have long banded together in the name of better rights, pay, liberties, and other benefits for themselves.

While some unions get more than a fair market value for their employees in terms of pay, far too many unions don’t get enough reeled in for their collective bases of constituents, with every union or group that teachers in the United States of America are associated with fitting the bill just as well as any other group.

Education is supposed to be highly important in the best societies around the world, right? While the strategies to help kids learn things are somewhat the same across planet Earth, the payment for teachers and public school administrators is far too low than what most reasonable people would think it would be.

Even though most educators in public school systems work towards master’s degrees in today’s age, they aren’t compensated as people holding the same degrees in other disciplines. All teachers, as a matter of fact, are required to have at least a bachelor’s degree here in the United States, with most states forcing teachers that want to retain their licensure to teach to undergo tens of hours’ worth of continuing education requirements – though they still aren’t paid nearly as well as they should be.

For this great reason, Teachers across the state of Arizona stood against the recent decline of a bill that would have risen the pay of teachers across the Southwestern United States state.

According to both the Arizona Education Association and Arizona Educators United, two separate groups, a statewide walkout is slated to take place on April 26. Doug Ducey could resolve the issue by giving teachers a collective raise of 20 percent by 2020, 9 percent of which comes next year.
