Support staff meaning teachers assistants making over 50,000??? Whether or not people are related. Look at how much teachers make I other districts and compare their contracts. And Carbondale is a lot less than other districts. There are a lot of teachers who put a lot of time into their kids. And some of the kids the teachers are responsible for are very difficult to deal with. Having 2 kids in the district, teaching in another, feel my childs education is priceless and so are the people responsible for them. They do more for those kids than some of their parents ever will. To me that is wonderful news to the teachers, support staff at the district. Usually the people that complain , don't appreciate teachers and their jobs, have children even attending school or don't pay taxes at all.

<span class=" fbUnderline">Are you sick of highly paid teachers?</span>

     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!!!!

 

Make a teacher smile; repost this to show appreciation for all educators.

 

Update: I'm glad that many people have shown their support for teachers by reposting this note, but I am not the original author.  I received this as an anonymous chain letter email, and I wanted to share it to support the public workers of Wisconsin.

Also let's not focus on the teachers who bust their butts day in and out about health insurance. Take a look at council members receiving health care. How often do they meet?? Why full health benefits
