It’s National Teacher Day. As part of a larger effort to recognize all that teachers do, many places are offering teachers freebies today. Several chain restaurants, like Chipotle and Einstein Bagel’s are offering deals to educators.
The National Education Association reports that on average teacher’s work over 52 hours a week, with 30 hours on spent on instruction and 22 hours devoted to lesson prep and grading. The average annual base salary for a full-time public school teacher is just over 53-thousand-dollars, but activists continue to pressure lawmakers to increase teacher pay with school walkouts and demonstrations.
To all the teachers, every day…thank you for ALL YOU DO.
