Why don't the teachers strike in this district for more pay, better benefits and better treatment? People talk about better pay for teachers and nothing gets done. The pay for teachers here in the district are the lowest in the state. No substantial raise in several years, less than a 1% raise.

Good compensation goes to the deserving. Our current administration feels those who work the hardest sit at home on disability, suffering from a hangnail.

Yes, El dorado school district and surrounding districts should be ashamed at what they are paying their Teachers. Very low pay. Can go anywhere else and make atleast $10,000 more per year. The administrators of the school districts are the ones raking in the big money..

They will have to force the district to step up with the pay. Chicago went on strike and they already make $75,000 annually. They are getting 16% raise over the next 4 years. This will make them at least $87,000 annually.

What has been El Dorado pay raises over the last couple of years?$500

You're failing to consider the cost of living in the two respected areas. Educate yourself some more, then please share your opinion. Thanks!

Teachers should be compensated on several factors that include, but are not limited to effectiveness, quality of education, classroom control, and personal education. I have to prove myself to get raises, and so should they. Educators are a-dime-a-dozen, but great educators are few.

I agree 100%.

Teachers don't need to be paid more. Teachers need more teachers. By reducing classroom size, teachers will be more effective and will have to deal with less stress. Therefore, they will be happier and won't need more pay. It's pretty much been proven that increasing teacher pay doesn't increase teacher effectiveness beyond a certain point.

All the good teachers go work for Universities as adjuncts because they have free reign over their classrooms. They can ban ill-behaved students without having a lawsuit dropped on them. K-12 teachers spend more time fighting/disciplining future criminals than actually teaching.

I'm not being mean here I want a legitimate answer. I really want to "get it". EHS has a pretty bad academic record. I don't want any excuses for how the numbers are wrong or there's some bias going on. I just want to know, at a school that does statistically poor at academics, why do you think you or teachers in general deserve a raise?

Also, should salary be dependent on the individual teacher, and the performance of that teacher's classes, perhaps?

Anyone feel free to chime in on both questions.

I don't necessarily think so. I do not think it is fair to blame everything on the teacher, especially if you have a classroom of all one ethnicity and/or very little parental involvement. I still believe it begins at home people!

Agree. That wouldn't be fair to teachers who live in certain... areas. If it was school by school comparison instead of a state thing maybe it would work.
