If you believe that teachers are overpaid, perhaps you should go do their job. I am quite certain that should you do that, you will quickly realize just how underpaid educators are. Education is one of the most important things we can do as a society, and you think they're overpaid? They may get the summer off, but do you realize just how much time they really get off? While they may contractually have 12 weeks off, they actually end up having between 7-10 weeks off. They will end up spending the five unpaid weeks preparing to educate the FUTURE of this country. And, while the legislatures continue to pile on extra responsibilities without compensating with greater pay, they are becoming more underpaid than they ever have been.
