As a teacher I am exposed...

As a teacher I am exposed to so many sick children whose parents have sent them to school because they do not have paid sick days. The children frequently are in no condition to be at school, with headaches, stomachaches, fevers or leaving the room quickly to vomit. The germs are passed throughout the school and the cycle continues. Parents should be able to earn and use sick days to care for their sick children. This would help lessen the spread of disease and keep the rest of us healtheir! Ironically, I have paid sick leave, yet teachers at my school get scolded by our principal when we use them.
