my wife is a teacher,she works 10 hr days for 56k a year
the problems with schools,is the bureaucracy.
those who run the show,get stupid amounts of money

theres schools in her district,that 1/2 the toilets dont work in the kids bathrooms
but the super intendant,get 100,000 a year to re decorate his office
that change needs to be,the ones,who never seem to get touched.

the teachers arnt the problem.

Re: Its contagious!

well i do know a part of it is the teachers and other school workers whining about money. imho they should just be happy they have a job in the first place in todays economy. there are tons of others who have been given 2 options 1; take a pay cut or 2; lose your job. why should the teachers and other school workers be any different?

Re: Its contagious!

on another note, they think that just because they are union they should be protected from pay cuts, yet many other union workers have taken pay cuts or laid off. school workers are NOT above others. my point is, if the rest of us are taking pay cuts or losing jobs, we cant afford to pay the same taxes which is what school workers are payed from. we cant afford to pay them the same amount if we dont make the same amount ourselves

whining about money ??
they should make more,do you have any idea how many hoops they jump through to become a teacher ??
you make it sound like an anto mechanic,with 1 year of community collage.
guess again,4 years and countless reports and community activitys and all kinds of other stuff,i dont understand.

besides the problem isnt the high cost of teachers saleries,
it's waste,mega waste on the part fo the folks running the show.

well believe what you want
bash the shat out of the teachers
get all new new ones that work cheap,and do a poor job,
and reap the benifits,of a declineing american people,
yes the problem are those,pesky achievers.

you been duped,the problem isnt enoughf money taken in from taxes.
the problem and it's system wide,is waste and pork spending,entitlements,for people with no drive to do anything,so the rest of us have to support them.
the problem is waste and stupidity
not most public worker saleries..

Re: Its contagious!

I don't think this is just about money nor just teachers. I do believe that earning a living is not a right or privaldge, but something that you earn from hard work. One thing I will point out is that recently in our small backward county here in GA. the Government employess salaries are public record. The local goober gazette posted the salaries of all the county school employess. The person who made the least was the guy keeping the school buses rolling #30,000 year. I was shocked at how much most of the educators make. the average hade to be $40K plus a year and how many made close to $100K. This means my hemorids are bleeding for them next time I hear some bitch'n about they don't make enough. "F" them.

I understand where you are coming from, but teachers from my area only work 9 months out of the year. 45k a year for nine months, I would be very happy. And I would keep my mouth shut.

Glamis, I don't have one problem with teachers. It is the union and the fact that we are paying their salary and BENEFITS! They pay zero out of pocket towards their pension, and we cannot afford it. If you worked in a private business and they stated to you that you will have to take a pay cut cause you have to start providing for your own retirment, you have two choices: Take it, or find another job - real simple. Cause if you don't we have to start cutting jobs, cause we are not sustainable.

What part of of "Creating something out of nothing" don't you all understand? This is simple physics here. Do you think the money will magically appear? You cannot get blood from a turnip. You should take some of your own practices to heart, and not be greedy. I am forced to give more, cause if I don't I won't be working where I am at. I don't really like it, but I am at least thankful I have a job and can provide for my family.
