Sorry but it doesn't make PERFECT sense. I can see the benefits short term but it isn't without costs. The teacher's pension fund is already underfunded quite a bit thanks to the market and an extra "kicker" in the formula would really take it south and cause much worse pain down the road. I'm actually surprised she's taking a long-term view on something like that. Making the multiplier 2.0% from 1.5% might have actually killed it. I'm surprised they didn't propose something a little more modest such as 1.75% which might have given it more of a chance. HUGE difference between 2 (a 33% increase) vs. 1.75 (16.5%).

Not sure the qualification for religious schools, but you can check there.

I really hope you are able to find a job in MI. With the new requirements beginning with the class of 2011 (Chem, Physics, Advanced Maths, etc) there is certainly a need for teachers in these fields, especially young, fresh, energentic ones!

In the mean time, I know of a huge need for tutors for these subjects as these kids struggle to pass these classes (mine included). Pre-physics and Chem has done some serious damage to his GPA . Good Luck and if you do end up tutoring on the side, notify local schools of your availability. Serious shortage of people available for these subjects!
