Why would we ever require a bachelor's degree to be a per diem sub??? Most of the substitutes I had (and my children currently have) sit around and read the paper. If kids don't kill each other and the classroom isn't on fire then they did a good job. It is nothing more than a low paying babysitting gig...you would get paid more watching the neighbors kids!

Billy- Clearly your standards are why the Peabody schools are so terrible. Sometime with a degree may actually get in there and do some teaching, and may be better able to answer questions. Maybe not, but at least the mentality of "sitting reading the paper" wouldn't be so prevalent. Tht being said, they should be paid more $ with a college degree. I have friends subbing with a Masters Degree...that pay scale is a joke.

Sadly, the substitute who comes in and tries to pick up where the teacher was the day before has gone the way of the dodo. Only permanent substitutes bother. While I think the jobs should still go to those who are certified as teachers and maybe awaiting a job out there, Billy has a point: in practice it has become a joke.

Unfortunately, the job openings for full time teaching are given to those with political ties. If a certified teacher applies as a sub in hopes to bump up to a ft job, even if they are a long term sub, chances are not always in their favor...it's all who you know. Either way, they should be paid more as a per diem working with 20 kids a day.
