Michigan looking to make it easier for teachers to come out of retirement

Legislators in Michigan are advancing bills that would make it easier for retired teachers to return to the classroom, as the state faces a continuing shortage of substitute teachers.

On Tuesday, a House panel voted unanimously to recommend passage of a bill allowing retired educators to go back to work after 12 months without losing any retirement benefits. The Senate Education Committee has also advanced a bill of their own, and both bills are expected to move to the the full chambers this week.

Current law states that retirees have to wait a full year before returning to work, and forfeit pensions and health benefits for each month that their pay exceeds a third of their former compensation.

Bridge Michigan reports that Michigan’s Office of Retirement Services is supporting both bills.

Good luck! A lot of teachers wanted to get out of the schools, since the leftist policies have turned them into toxic cesspools of idiocy. You’ll have a hard time convincing those people to come back since the idiot leftist policies are still in place. Of course, a lot of teachers ARE idiot leftists who don’t connect the dots between leftist policies and the toxic school environment…
