This especially applies to Catholic school teachers when administrators have intimidated teachers, though the average wage is some 80% of public schools, benefits aren't comparable,and they serve under annual At-Will contracts. This despite the fact that degrees are required in most diocesan schools, but don't go higher than a bachelor's degree because you are ripe to be shown the door in favor of a new teacher who will cost less.
