Studies show the use of substitute teachers is on the rise
After 13 years in public schools, Kyrah Mattson has come to know that having a substitute teacher means an “easy” day.
There may be a worksheet or a movie, but “never anything serious,” the 18-year-old said while enjoying her last weeks of high school.
“Sometimes I like it, but being a senior — I want to get out of here and graduate so I need my actual teacher so he can tell me what I need to do in class,” Mattson said. "They have access to all of your files and access to what you need to do. It's just easier when there's not a sub."
