Thankless Sub Job

I want to add that while it is true that subbing allows employees to pick when to accept assignments or not, it is also true that rejecting TOO MANY assignments will, in certain school districts,...

Summer Money & Subs

I agree that subs should be given summer unemployment benefits at least until the start of the school year. In NYC, schools do not call subs right away. Most schools begin to call subs into work in...

Letter of Reasonable Assurance

I do recall such a letter given to sub teachers at the end of the school year but I always WON MY CASE in court against the DOE. Most of the time, the DOE lawyer never showed up in court. As a...

Money. . . The Great Motivator

Money is the great motivator in most cases. I greatly dislike the fact that sub teachers are in great demand across the USA but when it comes to raising rate per hour or granting the summer off with...

District Testing For Subs

Perhaps not a state test but what about a school district entry test for subs to determine the best qualified person to cover for the absent certified teacher?

Explain....

Then how do you account for so many middle school and high school teachers sexually abusing and in many cases sleeping with students? I call that breaking through the cracks, through the system.

Hiring the Wrong People

Subs should be fingerprinted and
have a complete background check. A lot of criminals with a college education break through the cracks and get hired as full-time teachers and long-term paras and...

Subbing

No certification for day to day subs. I agree but I also think there should be at least one state sub teacher test. The test should cover basic reading, writing and math.

I have spoken to many...

Poverty Area & Tutoring

Parents in high-poverty areas cannot pay for tutoring. In NYC, the DOE under the Bloomberg administration decided on FREE TUTORING for NYC kids and teens putting most private tutors in quicksand.

Subs and Basics

I just think that sub teachers should show competitiveness in terms of basic reading, writing and math. A SUB TEACHER STATE EXAM is a good idea to weed out incompetence.

Teacher Certification

I agree. If long-term subbing is needed to cover a class, why not hire a certified teacher?

Esl tutoring

ESL tutoring is not my cup of tea. I have been math tutoring for years. I guess ESL tutors are in demand but so is math, physics and science.

Tutoring Rate/Hour

We are living in expensive times. I think $50/hour is more than reasonable. How badly do parents want their children to learn above the rest?

Tutor Job

Why worry about tax at all? Charge cash only seems to be working for many private tutors.
