Type in the district (for example, "1"), then select the district you're interested in (for example, "CCSD#1). WOW!

Facts is facts. Keep the facts in mind when you start hearing, "it's for the kids". I've had to tighten the belt big time. School board, are you listening?

<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!!!!

Right! And while were.at it, let's pay every McDonald's worker for each burger they flip and fry they drop, every gas station attendant for every POP and coffee they sell, every laborer for every shovel they throw and every cashier for each item they scan. But wait, thise jobs would be in such demand, who would be left to teach??

Ok think of the quality of education if we paid teachers min wage. Who would want to do it. Do you think its easy teaching 20-30 kids how to read, write, and to do math. Most jobs that require a four to six year education pay a lot more then being a teacher. If it wasn't for teachers this forum wouldn't exist because nobody could read or write. Most teachers put in a lot of time and effort into their job. Sure there is a few bad apples but every carreer has that. Look at some of the other school district and see what there salaries are and compare what they pay in taxes.

Yes, I'm impressed by your flawed reasoning and mental math skills ---- NOT! There isn't enough money. You're not going to tax us more. Tighten the belts. Teachers and school system, live within your means. Your bogus arguments could be made for any profession, from burger flipper on up. You're not unique. Face economic reality.

Any idea how hard it is to teach many of your children???? Some of these children were brain dead when we got them. Future brain surgeon!

I have no problem with teacher salaries. My issue is tenure, why shouldn't the non performers be fired. No one is cutting wages we want the ability to release bad teachers.

250 superintendents make more than the governor of illinois. Say that out loud to yourself. then say it again. Then say it again. Mr and Mrs. Degulie should speak at the town hall meetings about salaries. All it takes is for good people to stay silent to make sure that evil continues. teachers are not underpaid. Look at their insurance packages. I saw a 2 million dollar line item for blue cross blue shield in the paper. Divide that by the number of employees. Check the web to see what blue cross kicks back to the NEA every year. Teachers get raises on their salaries and they contribute nill to an ever increasing health insurance. That's a double raise. I'm either moving to indiana or wisconsin. this is why madison is still a great buy and u of i is double the price. Because the state can't pay the public universities because of legacy costs because of mostly teachers.

teachers complain about not getting social security. who cares you get COLA. Cost of Living Adjustment every year. Does any pension in the free world get cola. NON of the construction union trades. No private corp pensions. It's called fixed income. what is social security 12k a year. every teacher gets 80% of the last 3 best years. then the board gives them a 10k raise the last 3 years to force them out and just stick the state with the pension bill. 3% raise every year will blow past social security over 20 years. Its a geometric progression. Take a math teacher with a masters that is teaching fractions to kids, a masters the state mostly paid for and do a geometric progression on 3% compounding on an 80% pension. Don't even think about doing it for the upper brass. It will make you puke. 3500 teachers have over 100k pensions currently. Some draw for 20 plus years. Add COLA to that. Corporate Finance guys call that a nightmare of insolvency. They contribute 9%. That doesn't cover. sorry. School board should not be related to employees or former teachers. they should be above 55 years old and get paid $20k per year. NO superintendents. All funding should be local funding. So locals keep an eye on things and know the true revenue stream schools. Not some from the state, some from feds, and some from locals. ALL LOCAL. then you'll see how efficient private schools are.

This is Coal F'ing City. You idiots really think you are paying for the bulk of the teachers salaries? What are ya stupid? The bulk/majority of the teachers salaries and everything else associated with the CC school comes from taxes on the nuc plant i.e. Dresdan. What are ya stupid? You people act like it is all coming out of your pockets. If it were not were for the nuke plant your taxes would be double. Be grateful for what you got and close your pie hole. Morris School District would be glad to trade tax bases with you.
You'all sound like old whinning bitches. Shut up.

Just move out of CC to another school district up north and see what they pay! We have a bargin here.
Not to mention we have one of the top districts in the state. One day the nuclear plant will go away. Then reality is going to come home. Does everyone in CC complain about every little thing? Move to LaGrange and then talk to me about taxes and school.

School, library, fire department, they are all taxing bodies out of control. Spend spend spend.
It needs to stop or at least slow down.

So you want it to be locally funded. That makes sense. Have everybody pay $10k+ a year to send their kids to school instead of next to nothing now. We have a great school district that costs us very little compared to other areas. You can always become a teacher if you think it's so easy. Why don't you fight for benefits at your own job instead of trying to take them away from somebody else. You should be upset with CEOs of major companys that make millions at your expense. Instead of bitching about teachers being overpaid. Look at all the tax dollars the state wastes on stupid stuff like blago flying from Chicago to Springfield everyday at 7500 bucks one way.

I'm not a teacher. I just know alot of teachers and I know some of the things they deal with. I never said anybodys kid was brain dead. I just think people should know that being a teacher isn't a cake walk.

only 12% comes from the dresden....it's not just coal city..the whole state is under teacher union hostage..the state does waste money other places..but look at the line items..again 250 superintendents make more than the governor..over 3000 teachers have pensions over 100k and they get cola every year..it's a run away freight train..they only work 2/3 of the year..put the state's budget on a 4" square napkin..this is why wisconsin is doing what it is doing..illinois should follow..well the next governor will do it..not quinn..where do you think that extra $20/week goes now..legacy pensions..
