Well, whoever taught you certainly did a bad job...or was that really YOUR fault?

Considering teachers spend most of their time being daycare workers for brats I think they're underpaid. The ONLY concern in the weeklong teacher strike in Chicago was by parents griping about how were they going to find babysitters, not how would their education suffer by not being in school. Compared to what you pay per year for $100,000.00 home in property taxes for education, a fulltime 7 hr a day 5 days a week babysitter at 5.00 an hour would cost a lot more than the taxes you paid.

Reformed, your a flipping TARD! Teachers have it hard, they have to buy supplies for your tarded offspring out of their own pockets. They have to babysit your tarded offspring! Then they have to grade your lazy offsprings class work. Which I'm sure puts a smile on the teachers face because its all in crayon! Get a grip on life! As in all jobs, there are a few bad apples. But in the most part most teachers do an outstanding job with what they have.
It's your duty as a parent to start your kids education, by taking the time when they are young to read, draw and be creative. Teach them manners and the meaning of respect for their elders! Teach them the "The Pledge of Alligence"
It's funny, we pay the guy catching a ball more than the ones that teach our children!!

Teachers do NOT "have" to buy their own supplies. I get so sick of hearing that from whining teachers.....that and the exaggerations about their "long" working hours. Ridiculous.

Teachers are the start for our Children and they really need to be apprecited and paid a Good wage!!!!!!

They should stop paying coaches too! Paying them starts making them greedy for more more more then they start doing weird things. They also begin to lose sight of their true world and their place (the school stupid) You are a teacher not a supernatural being.

When will crybaby teachers take responsibility for the job they do (or do not do) in the classroom? Always acting like infants and trying to point the finger elsewhere.

The question has already been answered. They are where they are because of who they are. They are not smart enough to be out in the real world of working. Our poor poor kids!!!!!

Have to agree with jaws here--teachers are not the brightest group. When I was working toward an engineering degree, it was pretty widely accepted that the generally less academically motivated chose to attain their degree in education.

Take a look at some of the written communication sent home by teachers with your child; it's often similar to something a 3rd grader would write.

I am lucky enough to wonder the same thing about engineers.
i read written communications from engineers on a daily basis.
Talk about 3rd grade stuff.

Ha! Sure you do. Your name once again says it all... why dat??? Still not fooling anyone. So sorry that you were not smart enough to get a real job. Or, that you needed the job to validate yourself "me big man"----"me control young kids" Your like the wizard behind the curtain! Most of your students will graduate and move on to the real world and they will then lose some respect for their own parents who had to kiss your ... to try to stay a step ahead of you. Then they will have children of their own and they will understand that it is part of the facade and they will do it too. It still will not change the facts!

Too bad that when you were "working toward an engineering degree" you didn't learn about how the greater the unfounded assertion, the dimmer the wit that made the assertion.
How about this assertion that was going around my college campus back in the day, "Yesterday I couldn't spell 'engineer', now I are one". Speaking of "academically motivated", how about this broad brush assertion, "Engineers aren't educated, they're like dogs, they're trained".

There is a need for engineers the same as there is a need for garbage collectors. Why the disparaging remarks about anyone trying to make an honest living?
Just because you claim to be an engineer does not make you one iota better or brighter than a teacher.
A teachers' job is important and honorable. And yes, as a rule they are under paid.
They have been hamstrung by "No Child Left Behind."
They are no longer able to teach to each child based on their abilities. But, instead have to teach to a one size fits all test.
I am not in any way demeaning cocktail waitresses, but, something is awry when they make more money than a veteran science teacher with a masters degree and as many as 42 students per class.
Teachers deserve respect and support and should be fairly compensated, after all, our future depends on them.......
As everyone knows there are free loaders in every workplace including teachers. I have known a few, only a few. Most are hard working and dedicated.

My observation has been that there is a good number of freeloading who spend an inordinate number of hours in the lounge crying that they are underpaid while simultaneously complaining about the few students in their classrooms.

Teachers are government employees, and the public pays hundreds of thousands of them. We would go broke paying them what they THINK they're worth......all the while, they refuse to take responsibility for their dismal performance in the classroom.

Pathetic.

Your incoherent, grammatically incorrect introduction is what's pathetic. Who learned you how to spoke? Oh, that's right. Your freeloadings did. Must be their fault. Your inbred parents, probably kissing cousins nonetheless, aren't accountable at all for your angry shortcomings. Right?
