At $15 an hour, very few of the current fast food workers would have a job. A whole new class of workers that could get an order right, would take their position.

I am sick of overpaid teachers. Let's pay them like babysitters.

Teachers’ hefty salaries are driving up taxes, and they only work 9 or10 months a year! It’s time we put things in perspective and pay them for what they do – babysit! We can get that for less than minimum wage.

That’s right. Let’s 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– 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 students do they teach in a day…maybe 30? So that’s $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.

LET’S SEE…. That’s $585 X 180= $105,300 per year. (Hold on! My calculator needs new batteries).

What about those special education teachers and the ones with Master’s 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 — there’s something wrong here! There sure is!

The average teacher’s 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 student–a very inexpensive baby-sitter and they even EDUCATE your kids!) WHAT A DEAL!!!!

Timbo...I agree with you 90% of the time but you said....Teaching is a "calling?" Give me a break...Yea, the calling is that "I don't want a real job, 2 month vacations, one month at Christmas and lifetime job security with almost no chance of being fired no matter how bad I do my job."

Sir you are a fu<k*-g idiot with that statement. The job of a teacher does not end at 3:00. The first shift is over and the second shift begins. I have been married to a teacher for 25 years and she does more work in 10 months than most people do in 12. Plus, those 2 months off in the summer and 1 month during the school year are really not vacations. She still averages 35 hours a week. She genuinely cares about children and their education. She busts her A$$ around 340 days a year for the children in classroom. This Labor Day weekend, she will be working 8 hours a day for a lot of ungrateful parents just like you. Get to know a teacher before you make stupid statements.

alprova said...I see how the next few days are going to play out. People are going to scour the net for evidence of any black cop shooting white people.

My intent was to see if people would jump to the same conclusions as they did with Michael Brown. The video of the of the officer shooting the elderly man getting the cane shows the officer was fully justified and I believe the officer in Utah will probably be cleared too. No one knows the whole story in Ferguson yet but the officer has already been tried and convicted. Let the evidence be presented on both sides.

Black cop in Utah shoots and kills a white unarmed 20 year old male. Clay might want to cover this story ASAP.

Teachers deserve every benefit they get. Twenty years ago, the job required far less work outside of the classroom. 10 to 15 hours total for the week would cover it. Today, the job is quite different and you can forget the old stand by line ..."they have summers off". I am married to a veteran teacher and I can assure you that she has no life of leisure. She works a minimum of 4 to 5 hours every evening at least four nights a week, 8 to 10 hours on Saturday, and another 6 to 8 on Sunday. This past summer, she spent around 30 to 35 hours per week working on school materials for the coming year. She has a love for learning, a love for teaching, and a love for mentoring children.

The job of a teacher is mentally and physically exhausting. Teachers have the daily stress of educating, disciplining, and keeping up with 20 students a day. Plus, our teachers are no longer are allowed to sit down in the classroom. They are required to be moving around the classroom at all times. A few years ago, my wife wore a pedometer to work and she walked 8.5 miles in the classroom for the day. Most teachers don't even get a bathroom break until class is dismissed for the day. Our teachers will need good insurance for the replacement joints, bladder tucks, and blood pressure medications in their future.

Before you envy the salary and benefits of a teacher divide it by 70 hours instead of 40. Just another great example in our society of professional people being paid unprofessional wages. It just goes to show how screwed up our country really is. We care more about football than education. Don't believe it, look up the highest paid state employees in the United States.

I would strongly advise any student considering a career in education to find anther career and anyone thinking about marrying a teacher needs to think twice. I feel like I'm single most of the year.

But teachers have summers off.... In the words of Joe Biden... BFD!

Alprova...both sides equal to some extent.

If a bakery does not want our business. We find one that does, we don't want the other one closed. We figure they will go out on their own.

If we don't like a TV or radio show and the talent, we change the channel. Progressives want them off the air.

Just a couple of examples. I can't stay awake any longer.
