TEACHERS GET PAID TOO MUCH
I'm fed up with teachers and their hefty salary schedules. What we need
here is a little perspective. If I had my way, I'd pay these teachers
myself...I'd pay them babysitting wages. That's right...instead of
paying these outrageous taxes, I'd give them $3.00 an hour out of my own
pocket. And, I'm only going to pay them for five hours, not coffee
breaks disguised as planning times. That would be $15.00 a day. Each
parent should pay $15.00 a day for these teachers to babysit their
children. Even if they have more than one child, it's still cheaper
than private daycare. Now how many children do they teach a day - maybe
twenty? That's $15.00 x 20 = $300.00 a day. But remember, they only
work 180 days a year! I'm not going to pay them for all those
vacations. $300 x 180 = $54,000. (Just a minute, I think my calculator
I know you teachers will say what about those who have ten years of
experience and a master's degree? Well, maybe (just to be fair) the
teachers could get the minimum wage, and instead of just babysitting,
could read the kids a story. We can round that off to about $5.00 an
times five hours, times twenty children. $5.00 x 5 x 20. That's $500 a
times 180 days. That's $90,000.
HUH???? Wait a minute! Let's get a little perspective here.
wages are too good for those teachers. Did anyone see a salary schedule
