3 Ps in a Pod: An Education Podcast

Mar 22, 2018

Welcome to season three of “3Ps in a Pod!” Today’s hosts, Donnie and Mary, discuss a fiery topic—teacher salary. Educator pay pushes beyond classroom walls and barrels into teachers’ personal lives. Whether there is a comma on your paystub or not, it’s no secret that teachers (everywhere) are undercompensated. Currently, Arizona rounds out the ranks for teacher pay, notably 50th in the nation for elementary and 49th for high school. Ninive Calegari, founder of the Teacher Salary Project, hears (and feels) the uproar of what’s happening in the state. Although she mourns the teacher shortage and hopes her work will make a difference, the filmmaker and education evangelist asks listeners to ponder what they can do to be catalysts for change. #3PsinaPod
