"I worked in retail management for 7 years and left the profession to fulfill my dream of being an educator. I made $18,000 more as the manager of a cosmetics store. The only reason I can afford to stay in this profession is because of my husband's salary."
Allison Haley, High School Teacher
"I am a parent who is actively involved in her child's education and a volunteer in his school. I believe that teachers are paid too little, especially considering the demands put on them."
Laurie Robinson, Parent
