Parker Williams, a 9-year-old elementary school student in Florida, made local news after giving his birthday money to his teacher.




Williams attempted to give his teacher a $15 pay bump because he thought "teachers don't get paid enough."




Statistics show teachers get paid 21% less than similar jobs that require a college degree, contributing to a nationwide teacher shortage and swelling class sizes.

A boy in Florida got $15 for his ninth birthday — and gave it all to his teacher.
Parker Williams, an elementary school student in the third grade, gave his elementary school teacher a pay raise using his own gift money, WFLA-TV reported. Williams attached a note to his gift which read, "Dear Mrs. Chambers, I don't think that teachers get paid enough for what they do, so, will you accept this gift?"
While Williams meant well with his charitable act, the fact that he gave away his money to his teacher signals how dire the teacher pay crisis in America has become.
