Back on topic oddly I always have work you just have to be willing to uncut your competition and swallow ones pride. Your a teacher ever consider assisting home schooling parents with teaching mathematics for what they can afford to pay Texas if I recall has many doing that, even if you make half what you would teaching in a public school. You could work as a fast food service manager working your way from shft manager you have a bachelors degree add a certificate in small business management there you go. And most retail store chains having a degree is a ticket to work up to management.
You have to work at what you can work at, who cares if its teaching if that is what youre educated in with this economy?
And for your information education is mostly funded by the states and local counties, you should not even expect Federal money for the system make do with what you get. For example just don't fund extracurricular activities and I mean any of them unless tied to a class, let parents and students come up with the money plus a stipend for every hour a teacher spends advising them say 150% the minimum wage in your state. And yes all the costs if you child is in football that means uniforms, transportation, equipment, motel rooms, stipends per hour for every faculty member when they are not supervising the children etc. Teachers in my state and the state constitution demands education be funded for me that is what is needed to get a diploma and tending to the childs academic and job preparation needs. School psychologists that is medical care and legally the parents duty to get. School social workers why the hell are there those they have agencies of the government and charities that offer such services. Then maybe after cutting this out you will have more money for teachers to hire more of them. Schools have to be schools and gut anything not academic or career preparation in nature out of the budget. I know I will have critics here but might I ask what does football have to do with getting a diploma or lets go over and say theater clubs when it takes up teachers time without paying them more?
