Low pay has teachers flocking to the sharing economy
from The Atlantic
Airbnb, the popular platform that lets people rent out their homes and apartments, released the results of a volunteer survey containing the striking statistic that nearly one in 10 of its hosts in the United States is an educator. In some states the trend appears to be even more pronounced — more than a quarter of all Airbnb hosts in Utah and Wisconsin, for example, work as teachers or in education (the company includes in that category administrators and college professors). This is especially noteworthy given that an analysis of census and National Center for Education Statistics figures suggests that just less than 2 percent of adults in the country work as full-time K-12 teachers.
