A Kansas school teacher stepped down from her post in dramatic fashion this week, citing dissatisfaction in contract negotiations by her school district.

When eighth-grade teacher Amanda Coffman appeared in front of the Shawnee Mission School District’s board of education on Monday, she immediately resigned from her position and took the room by surprise.

“Several years ago, a good friend decided to leave education and she said to me, ‘Teaching is like a bad marriage, you never get your needs met, but you stay in it for the kids,’” Coffman told board members during the taped meeting.

“Teaching is like a bad marriage, you never get your needs met, but you stay in it for the kids.” I fear there will be a lot of teachers leaving. Many in the SC legislature simply do not understand what is at stake.
