Higher salaries might help recruit the best college graduates to teaching, but they are not enough to retain top talent.
Meridith Hembree Berry's insight:
I do agree with this article's inference that teachers are not overpaid, but I would have stated that more forcefully. Talk about a difficult job! Maybe the US is not the #1 in the world in math, science, geography...but let me say, no other nation in the world educates as many children from as many different language groups, cultures, socio-economic, and learning development stages and backgrounds. Compare a teacher's salary to a professional athlete's who "entertain" us for 3 or 4 hours a week and who get several months of "vacation" each year. My opinion, we marginalize children and their needs.
"Dear Subway, I really wish you would have talked to a farmer. I really wish you would have done so before your big announcement saying you would, as of 2016, be sourcing all of your turkey and chicken as being raised without antibiotics."
I understand the concern over eating meat that has residual antibiotics, but I also understand that disease in animals is as cruel as in humans. Do we let the animals die from a treatable disease? Think of the chicken farmers in Iowa who had to destroy their entire flock because of bird flu. What if an antibiotic would have kept the birds healthy? There is a waiting period after treating an animal before it is safe to harvest for meat, responsible producers know this and abide by best practices. It is frustrating when a group criticized producers for not caring for their livestock and in the next breath complain about the drugs used to treat them.
Meat does not come from a machine. There a hundreds of variables that go into producing the safest most reliable food supply on the planet. Three words for those who are still in doubt: Grow Your Own.
For the first time since 1880, Americans ages 18 to 34 are more likely to be living with their parent(s) than in a household shared with a spouse or partner.
Meridith Hembree Berry's insight:
Economics certainly plays a role in young adults living with parents, but I also wonder, how much care-taking plays into this? With longevity on the rise, and the cost of assisted living and nursing care rising, are young adults moving back home to help care for an aging parent? As a parent of young adults, I cannot express the joy I felt when they moved out. I was so pleased that they had the wherewithal to make that leap. I would not hesitate to open my home to them if they were in need, but they need the room to grow, and succeed or fail on their own. That's part of being a grown-up. On the upside of this trend, maybe this will strengthen family bonds rather than unravel them.
