Teacher Shortage in California? NOT!
Name: [name redacted]
Date: June 12, 2001
In Monterey county, older and male teachers need not apply for work as teachers. I am a returning teacher and after 4 years of substitute work I ended up teaching at Salinas Valley State Prison as I could not get hired despite my full credential (Calif. Multi-Subject Professional Clear) and my CLAD certification. Problem? Too old (54) and male....
The prison teaching staff is primarily older teachers who are now unwanted by school districts....mostly men.
I am a returning teacher.......I taught primary (k-3) elementary before I went into healthcare marketing...I returned to teaching...went back to school to meet new credential requirements only to find out that I was wanted only as a substitute teacher at less than $18K per year.
I have submitted twelve applications for the 2001-02 school year and I cannot get an interview. This age and gender discrimination is wide spread and flies in the face of the news media cry of "teacher shortage".
