We are the Teachers of Kaplan, and We Demand Justice
Ben Bush, teacher in both for-profit and non-profit language programs, states:
Two points about labor rights for teachers in for-profit schools: 1) Public teachers, non-profit teachers, and for-profit teachers are in many cases the exact same teachers. Because of the growth of part-time work in all of these areas, teachers often work at two or even all three of these types of institutions. 2) Keeping wages and benefits low for for-profit teachers just makes that model of education more attractive to the people who hold the purse strings. Thanks for taking the time to hear what may fellow teachers and I have to say.
