The problem is, the Uber competent teachers that spend their career underpaid
Are all retiring. It's impossible for a young teacher to survive on a teachers salary in utah. Many young teachers are getting out of the profession after 5 years. The forced inflexible curriculum, incompetent administrators, and a few parents make the profession not fun anymore. We've had two daughters who loved teaching decide to bail. For now.
Public education is headed for a cliff.
