Let's see, if a teacher works less than six hours (and I've never heard of that) they are lazy and overpaid. If they work more than six hours a day, they are inefficient. I would say they cannot win. I live near a Groveport school and I see several teachers arrive at school around 7:30 and see their car leave the parking lot around 5:00. That is not six hours and I don't think they are inefficient. Heaven forbid, do you think they might be dedicated?
I don't believe you. I don't believe you are watching when said teachers arrive and still watching when they leave. I believe you are not telling the truth.

As a supervisor for the state for more years than I care to count, I can say without hesitation that being present on the job site does not equate to productive work being accomplished. Presence on the job does not equate to dedication or production. How much time do these teachers spend in the teachers lounge or just doing other things besides work. The facility in which I worked had several teachers. One teacher was coming to work, teaching a class in the morning, leaving work...while still on the state clock...going to his second job of stocking chips in the local gas stations, then returning after 2 hours and finished the day teaching another class before returning home for the day. I understand that teachers in a state facility have different circumstances but I watched as several milked the system for years. It takes forever to get rid of these leaches because the union coddles them. Teachers aren't the only ones. Maintenance workers, farm workers and others would come to work at 730am. They weren't able to pick up their inmates until 8am. Back to the shop to pick up their tools for a job. Count was at 11 am. The inmates had to be back before count so they stop what they are doing at 1030am to get the tools back to the office. Maintenance waited for the count and the inmates to have lunch. The inmates were picked up at 1pm, back to the office for tools. They work until 330pm because of the next count and the workers would clock out a 4pm to go home. Did they ever work 8 hours in a day? Never. The union coddled these workers while they were being paid $17 to $24 per hour of your money. I have no sympathy for these teachers. People are hurting everywhere. There are no funds to give you raises because it is for the children my rear end.

Thanks to the last three posts for making my argument that teachers just can't win. And to answer the comment that I lie when I say I see the teachers come and go, how in the world would you know that without knowing me or my circumstances? I take that as just another negative post with nothing to back it up. Please know your facts before you malign.
