Time has a beef with teacher pensions
Time Magazine makes the case against teacher pensions this week… Or at least a strong argument for major reforms.
Andrew Rotherham, the blogger behind Eduwonk, argues that current teacher pension systems are putting states and municipalities in a financial hole. Plus, he believes they encourage teachers to stay in the classroom even if they don’t really want to be there.
The argument for keeping teacher pensions the way they are is largely absent here. Would some teachers like to chime in?
