fourth......what you call a salary isnt what a teacher brings home to live off of. After retirement, taxes, benefits.....no teacher brings home more than 60% of their salary. Its more like 45%
Lastly, is being an educator the most important job in our society.....yes it is. You think you would want the brightest and best. Paying them scraps doesnt do that.
1) I am also an educator. I have 15 years in, so I assume fewer than you. I know what I make, and I know how it stacks up to other career fields as well as other school districts. I'm paid JUST FINE for what I do. Heck, most of the times I think I almost make too much.
2) We are paid for 185 days of work. Take your daily wage and multiply it by an arbitrary 260 (52 weeks * 5 days in a week). What do you make now? You are NOT PAID SCRAPS.
CC, the only thing you do with your idiotic rants is prove to people everything they already think about teachers (and you).
