Some teachers and education professionals aren’t waiting for policymakers to compensate them fairly. They are simply picking up side hustles, and others are turning their passions into businesses.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, nearly 60% of public school teachers supplement their teaching salary with income through other jobs.
Simply put, having a side hustle is very real for many teachers across the country. Teachers are five times more likely to have a side gig than other full-time employees.
