So, this proposed program would mean that these teachers would only teach some of the time?
Isn't that why we have substitute teachers?
This part-time program would result in reduced hours for the teachers and also give them a part-time salary only.
A part-time salary for dealing with students doesn't seem like something retired teachers would want to do. Students can be a bit much to handle (speaking as a former student).
Additionally, it would present a problem to students because interchanging teachers would cause confusion in who they see as an authority figure and restrict their ability to form a relationship with the teacher.
One of the proposed benefits of the program was that retired professors would bring passion and experience to a classroom.
Aren't teachers supposed to do that in the first place?
The proposal was rejected this past Tuesday and was unanimously met with criticism and quickly denied.
