Teachers are not paid to stay home for 3 months...they are laid off for 3 months out of the year. Some districts do not pay teachers over the summer months, some do. But you will find those same teachers are the people who teach in Bible school, coach ball, and participate in many functions for your children during those same months. Just to clarify, I'm done.

I don't think the phrase "laid off" applies here. Teachers in Illinois work a schedule number of days which I think is roughly 179-180 days. I think most teachers spread their pay throughout the year and including into the summer.

"Laid off" applies to teacher's aides, not teachers.

Some would say they are over paid and some are. The ones that are making 80,000 to 90,000 per year certainly are. If you think they will not get a raise then think again. If they would happen to got on strike they still will not loose a dime. The district,in order to get their money from the state,will make up the time. People that actually work for a living and go on strike never make up the money they miss by not working, but teachers do. I am not saying that their jobs are not difficult but no one held a gun to their heads to become a teacher

I for one am all for our teachers getting a raise. I think any one who teaches our children should make a decent wage. I am not a teacher, just a retired steel worker.

I would say from $25.00 to $35.00 per hour, which is less than what I made when working the last year before I retired.

i have a family member in williamson cty also that works in the kitchen. they are paid by the hour and do not get unemploymnet for summer work. its considered seasonal. as for teachers, my sister is one. they are paid for the year they elect whether or not to get paid during 9 months or over the 12 month period. no unemployment for them. she does have to take summer classes and go to conferenes to keep her license up though.

Wonder if anything was said about the teachers contract at the SB meeting last night?

From what I've heard, sounds like Goins is running the show. He is not for the teachers but more concerned about the public aid parents we have and pleasing them. If we are smart he won't see another contract with us.
