Photo #100/365: Grade In

In response to all the teacher bashing that's been going on, the Des Moines Education Association held a "Grade In" today to illustrate the time that teachers spend working weekends and evenings. I took my cart, filled with all the things I brought home to work on, and headed out to Merle Hay Mall to grade papers in the food court.

Education in Iowa is facing serious cuts again this year. A rally will be held on Wednesday at the state capital asking for 2% allowable growth in funding. Our governor wants to give us 0.

  1. But at least your governor is not dissolving collective bargaining?

    Hey, a grade in sounds like a great way to show folks how much work we do on our own time in this "cushy, practically part time" job we have!!
