  1. The double pay is certainly nice, but I don’t think it’s enough incentive for these very experienced teachers to come back. Think about it. One thing every retired teacher says they don’t miss are the psycho parents. They don’t miss these psycho parents trying to intimidate or bully them because their “problematic” child refuses to do their schoolwork, study, be cooperative, and even show up for school….ALL of which are responsibilities of that psycho parent.
    So, yeah, if the school system wouldn’t have given these psycho parents perceived power over them, I’d guess there would be many more retired teachers who might want to return, at least for a few years.
    As far as the school system goes, they need to start handling these psycho parents better…tell them enough is enough, and if they feel their child is being adversely affected in some way, then the psycho parent should take them out and either homeschool them, send them to a private school, or move to another school district. The TRAL WORLD doesn’t work their way and their child will suffer because of them.
    Sorry…went off on a long tangent there! But you get my drift as to why many teachers wouldn’t want to return.
