Yes, we need both professions, but without teachers there would be no nurses, firefighters, military etc. The disparity in pay is pathetic. I have no problem giving them a break in any way we can. Just my .02!
Now don't flame me. I am sure teachers are under paid in many areas.
In my area (75 miles north of NYC) teachers start at 45k and get 80k after about 7 years. they work 7:30 AM to 2:25 PM, have every holiday for every religion off, 10 days for spring break, 10 days for Christmas, and the summer off.
I wish I was a teacher.
$80,000???? I need to move to NYC....I am a teacher and a coach.........I make a grand total of $35,000....I am at work by 6:30 AM and NEVER leave before 5:30.....on game nights (which are AT LEAST 3 nights a week, sometimes 4) I leave at 9:30 making my work days 15 hours......GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU LUMP EVERYONE UNDER 1 UMBRELLA! :evil: :evil:
