Nails in the coffin of education
Placeholder Image
To the editor, By the time you read this opinion another nail may have been driven into the coffin lid of Tennessee’s education system. House of Representative sheep are about to rubber stamp a Senate plan to abolish the already almost worthless salary bargaining rights of Tennessee teachers.Tennessee is currently forty-sixth, four places from the bottom in average nationwide teacher salary compensation. Furthermore, DeKalb County is about ninetieth out of about one hundred-thirty six systems in average salary paid to teachers.
