Teachers' 25 years of service
I am concerned with the fact that after a few years of teaching one finds himself exhausted, demotivated and unappreciated. Wages are not in sync with the amount of time spent correcting, preparing your lessons, creating resources, buying material (sometimes equipment too) and much more.
One simple and effective way to ensure new blood (and attract new people)in our profession (in my opinion) is to introduce a scheme where educators have to complete a 25 year service and then they can decide to take a FULL pension or continue teaching.
Anyone who is in direct contact with children can apply for the pension (at the end of the 25 years of service).
I urge you to sign this petition and pass it on to the authorities!
Keep the ball rolling,
