This is about teacher pay, something my hubby sent me:

Are you sick of high paid teachers? Teachersí hefty salaries are driving up taxes, and they only work 9 or 10 months a year! Itís time we put things in perspective and pay them for what they do - baby sit! We can get that for less than minimum wage.

Thatís right. Letís give them $3.00 an hour and only the hours they worked; not any of that silly planning time, or any time they spend before or after school. That would be $19.50 a day (7:45 to 3:00 PM with 45 min. off for lunch and plan ó that equals 6 1/2 hours).

Each parent should pay $19.50 a day for these teachers to baby-sit their children.

Now how many do they teach in dayÖmaybe 30? So thatís $19.50 x 30 = $585.00 a day. However, remember they only work 180 days a year!!! I am not going to pay them for any vacations.

LETíS SEEÖ. Thatís $585 X 180= $105,300 peryear. (Hold on! My calculator needs new batteries).

What about those special education teachers and the ones with Masterís degrees? Well, we could pay them minimum wage ($7.75), and just to be fair, round it off to $8.00 an hour. That would be $8 X 6 1/2 hours X 30 children X 180 days = $280,800 per year.

Wait a minute ó thereís something wrong here! There sure is!

The average teacherís salary (nation wide) is $50,000. $50,000/180 days = $277.77/per day/30 students=$9.25/6.5 hours = $1.42 per hour per studentĖa very inexpensive baby-sitter and they even EDUCATE your kids!)

WHAT A DEAL!!!!

I look at and wish I made the "average" teacher salary there. Maybe someday, but as a second year teacher with only a Bachelor's degree, that's a long way from me.
