Retired teachers return to classroom in Wisconsin
from Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Teacher retirements may have doubled statewide in this year of Wisconsin budget wars, but some school districts are lessening the drain on classroom experience by bringing back teachers who left the classroom at the beginning of the summer. Peter Hirt, superintendent of the North Lake School District, said his district has hired two teachers who announced their retirement in March. Though the two are being paid at about the rate they would have been paid had they stayed on, Hirt said, the district is still saving money on their compensation — and would be even if the alternative was to hire replacements right out of college — because the district doesn't have to pay for their health insurance or contribute any more to their retirement fund.
