Why I can't give up S & C
Original post made by PUSD teacher, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on May 28, 2009
I've read these posts and have seen that many people here think teachers live in this alternate universe untouched by the troubles the private sector is feeling. I just want people to understand that this one teacher is thankful for her S & C raise, not because she's "greedy", but because she needs it to help her family stay afloat.
Maybe there are more teachers in my situation than people realize, and maybe our reasons for holding onto S & C are not all that different from your reasons for holding onto your $233.
