Automotive News said:
General Motors said today it will offer discounts on most 2014 and 2015 Chevrolet, GMC and Buick vehicles to teachers and other employees of public or private schools, from preschool through college.
The GM Educator Discount program runs today through Jan. 2. It excludes the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 and Spark EV. School employees may buy or lease as many as two discounted vehicles under the program. School employees’ spouses and children may participate in the program, but the children must be under age 21 or full-time students under age 25. Dealerships may opt out of participating in the program.


Discounts under the program are similar to those offered to GM suppliers, said Lisa Gill, account supervisor with MSLGROUP, a public relations company. Supplier pricing is the dealer invoice price plus shipping and a $150 program fee.


The program’s Web site lists discounts from sticker prices such as $1,159.95 off the 2014 Chevrolet Impala 1LT, $2,173.24 off the 2014 Buick Enclave and $2,466.14 off the 2014 GMC Sierra 1500.


Program discounts may be combined with other offers, such as bonus cash, according to the Web site.
“GM values the work our educators and support staff are doing across the country to create a strong, responsible work force for the future,” Linda Stouffer, GM’s manager of vehicle purchase programs, said in a statement.


GM is an exhibitor at the National Education Association’s two-day 2014 NEA Expo in Denver, which began today.


The company has been increasing its promotions to certain buyer groups. In October, GM increased discounts to employees, retirees and their immediate families, and expanded the discounts to include aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. It also enhanced its discount for active-duty military members.

Teachers don't really get paid enough in the states so it is a nice gesture from GM. Seems a little odd to me though. If I was a teacher it would probably get me in the door of the dealership at the least though.

i do not support this at all but sure, if they need to feel like helping out some folks, why not.

Why's that?


Our youth grow up to be the decision makers in our society. When I'm retired, it is today's youth who will keep the nation moving. Everyone has a stake in ensuring youth are well educated, both in skills and character. The teachers are whom influence our youth -- God help them with today's millennial generation.


My view is that teachers are underappreciated in our society, so I support initiatives by companies to make life more affordable for teachers.

the teachers dont decide what to teach however. Its those who are making those decisions that you should be worried about. Our education system has already been gutted, why do you think art history majors exist? because we've raised stupid children to believe thats a logical career choice. As if a modern student would know logic if it stabbed them in the eye...


as for salaries they're not UNDERPAID by any metric...



and the states has a higher skew towards women teachers, about 70% of all teachers in America are women. I see this as a stealthy campaign targeting women more than anything else. After all you can't actually target women anymore without being called sexist or misogynistic or whatever the new buzz word is...

The mistake is believing that some knowledge is only worth studying if it results in economic productivity in our current society. That's not what education is about. All knowledge is worth learning -- just some pays better than others.

But its not ALL knowledge, is water being wet knowledge or fact ;). Surely you don't rank the difference between Monet and Manet equal with Quantum mechanics?

yup that's basically why i'm against it, teachers are no different than anyone else that has a job.
