[quote]Do you think the scoring has been more strict?[/quote]
No. At first they used Exit Exam, ileap, graduation rate, and attendance rate. Then they stopped giving the ileap at high schools. Then the exit exam was replaced with end of course tests. Now they added ACT scores and diploma endorsem...

Your SS payments will be reduced depending on how much you get from TRSL. If you retire from teaching after age 60, you get 2.5% of the average of your 5 highest pay years times the number of years you work.
