Teachers, facing low salaries, opt to moonlight

from eSchool News

Second jobs are not a new phenomenon for teachers, who have historically been paid less than other professionals. In 1981, about 11 percent of teachers were moonlighting; the number has risen to about 1 in 5 today. They are bartenders, waitresses, tutors, school bus drivers and even lawnmowers. Now, with the severe cuts many school districts have made, teachers who hadn't considered juggling a second job before are searching the want ads. The number of public school teachers who reported holding a second job outside school increased slightly from 2003-2004 to 2007-2008. While there is no national data for more recent years, reports from individual states and districts indicate the number may have climbed further since the start of the recession. more
