Is teaching the only profession where there is a HUGE discrepancy in salary and support based on WHERE your school is located?

Is anyone concerned about job loss and salary cuts for 2021-22 year? I’m unclear of why the district hasn’t saved some $ by placing district coordinators and vps with prop educ exp back into the classroom while this pandemic is occurring. I realize they would be taking a pay cut but when the 2021/22 year starts I don’t want to see districts cutting teachers. Most large school districts are top heavy anyway with4-5 vps in school sites in which we could do w/o not a necessity.

Does anyone use a science curriculum that they actually like? One with authentic learning, covers the necessary material, includes literacy components, where students are engaged, & there are scaffolding options built in? Bonus if it has a vertical alignment layout! I’ve asked every teacher I know across the US & this seems to be something that doesn’t exist. No one seems satisfied with their science curriculum. Question 2: what do you look for in a quality science curriculum? Non-negotiables?

What would you do if a coworker asks you to disclose your salary info so that she can tell another person it, who is applying for a job (thinking since it was my first year and it will be hers and they would be similar)? It automatically made me feel uncomfortable and it’s someone I don’t have a great relationship with, but also don’t want to be on her bad side? How would you feel?

What % on average should you ask for your salary to increase by? I’m underpaid relative to my male counterparts - not exactly sure by how much but I’ve been told they make more even with less experience. I’m having a discussion with my manger this week on it. Is asking for 15k more too much? I’m an associate but I perform at a VP level and my manger recognizes this and has said it herself several times. But also said with Covid that salary increases will be tight. What do I do?
