Miami-Dade Teacher “Skip Day” By the Numbers

A quarter of Miami's teachers didn't work Monday

Not since the swine flu epidemic have Miami-Dade classrooms been so empty.

Just how empty, you ask? Take a look at these numbers released by Miami-Dade Schools on all the teachers who decided to participate in a "sick out" to protest a possible new way they get paid.

Apparently, elementary school teachers are the most frustrated with the potential merit pay bill, which passed last week.

Only four of the 46 teachers at Wesley Matthews Elementary school showed up for work Monday. That percentage is similar to Village Green Elementary, where 31 of 34 teachers decided it would be a nice day to stay home and boycott.

Take a look at the rest of the Miami-Dade schools who suffered from a bout with teacher anger today. The first number signifies how many teachers did not show up for work.
