Experts Available to Discuss Necessity for Teachers to Take Second Jobs.

TOPIC: While teachers get two months during the summer off, many find themselves working second jobs to make ends meet, according to an article by The Daytona Beach News-Journal. According to the Volusia Teachers Organization, many teachers live paycheck to paycheck. Although teachers receive pro-rated checks during the summer, they are only paid for 10 months of work. Teachers must also spend a few weeks out of the summer attending professional development workshops to keep up their credentials.
