Did I read that correctly? Florida used absenteeism in grading of schools and that grade goes into how much salary a teacher makes.
So a teacher now has to be a doctor to keep the student well enough to keep going to school, has to be a travel agent so that parents don’t make trips during the school year and has to be a taxi driver so that kids who don’t have transportation can get to school. Considering all these extra responsibilities I see why teachers deserve more salary than they get.
