Schools don't seem to want experienced, capable teachers who know content; they want age. They don't seem to want teachers that have 10+ years of experience, graduate degrees, or anything that would be valuable. They want young teachers that don't even have a clear license yet, because they don't have to pay them anything.

After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
