I'm not saying I'm more deserving than other people. I just know that I'm at the very bottom of starting pay when compared to other districts and even in the private sector.

Also, SC runs 49 and 50 in Education because when they introduced no child left behind, we didn't lower our standards so we could meet the new requirements we left our standards were the should be - high.

Also, there are many districts in the I-95 "Corridor of Shame" that drag us down because of the hugely disproportionate lack of funding when compared with areas like Rock Hill, Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson, Columbia/Lexington, and Myrtle Beach. They literally have half or a third of the budget of those districts yet have just as many students.

South Carolina's main problem is the equal funding of education, in a nut shell.

And also, not to get on my education soapbox, but I know plenty of veteran teachers (GOOD ones) who haven't got a pay raise since even before 2008 when the economy went to poo.
