They wouldnt hire someone with a 1 or 2 year degree and pay them to teach - they would hire them as a teachers aide. If the teachers aide wants teachers pay, then she can go back to school and get the teaching degree. What's so unfair about that?
My friends in Ohio say its the same there.
On the flip side - we NEED LVN's. There are just flat not enough RN's to go around and there never will be. The only way to attract them and keep them is to PAY them!

So does a RN with an associate degree fit into this. Not every school district hires BSN nurses for their schools ,so there is no way this can be a correct assumption that most districts are ran this way. If so there is no way you would keep your staff. My school district has LVN's at every elem ,intermediate and middle school ,there is a RN at the High school . I know this woman and she has a AAS (if it is the same woman). There has not been a job opening in a while cause Im waiting for it , so the pay may not be all that but they must treat them fairly.

Associates (or 1 year certificate) degreed positions are not generally recognized as degreed positions in education.
