#159: Rich Teachers 💰
By Mark Isero • Issue #159 • View online
Nobody becomes a teacher to get rich. But in many places across the country, the typical teacher’s salary does not eke out even a middle-class lifestyle. (It’s very possible some Highlighter subscribers understand this phenomenon firsthand.) As a result, as this week’s lead article explains, more teachers pursue side hustles to pay the bills. It turns out, some do very well.
Don’t forget that tonight is Highlighter Happy Hour #7! We’ll be meeting at Room 389 in Oakland beginning at 5:30 pm. If you’re advanced, read all of today’s articles beforehand, so you’re fully prepared! (Suggested reading time: 3 hours.) Get your ticket here.
