I agree that teachers work very hard. Most teachers put in 10 - 12 hours a day, especially Elementary School teachers. They are not paid too well for what they do.

It's not the teachers that are the problem, it's the teachers union. Most teachers are dedicated professionals but they are handicapped by by ridiculous rules instigated by the NEA and the union. Get rid of the NEA and let teachers teach. Get rid of the union and let the teachers compete. Separate the wheat from the chaff. Ever notice why the private schools have the best academic records? Maybe it's because the teachers aren't restricted by a bunch of BS.

Maybe it's because the teachers are well paid and the children tend to come from affluent families that are highly involved in their children's education.

I know some teachers that will use their own money to get supplies for their class(because of budjet cuts)to make ends meet for some of their students that can't afford basic supplies.....THANK GOD FOR TEACHERS!

********** BOTTOM LINE **********

I went to apply for a job in a Florida lemon grove.

The foreman frowned and said, "I have to ask you this: Have you had any actual experience in picking lemons?"

"Well, as a matter of fact, I have…I've been divorced three times, owned 2 Toyotas, and I voted for Obama."
