I received a letter in the mail today that I am being considered for jury duty. It was sent to my old address so I don't think I will have to serve, since it's in a different county. But then I was thinking, do they make teachers do jury duty? I'm sure they do, and that no profession is immune to it, but it just seems a little weird to have a teacher serve, since you technically don't know how long you will be gone. It seems like it would cost the state a fortune, since they have to pay for subs. Plus, high-stakes testing is such a big deal and research has shown that student achievement goes down when teachers are frequently absent.
