They are Getting out why the getting is good. The state is changing up on stuff. Retirements are going to be different. I say they are smart people If I could go home why not why would you stay longer than necessary. Don't make no sense to me. Some people stay way over the time they could retire. Who in their right mind would want to do that? Hope they all enjoy their retirement.

For nearly an olam and a score the walls of the fortress has held. Rebuking a few febble attempts at entrance but relinquishing none the powerful structure withstood. The walls are now crumbling from lack of repair and neglect.

Within a few short weeks the winds of change will sweep the walls clean and give birth to a new design, while maybe not the quality of the old, new blueprints will point the way. How long the survival rate will be tested with each biennal.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'

Yea and don't forget those 3 or 4 month paid VACATIONS, I'd quit too...NOT!!!
Teachers don't receive paid vacation during the summer months. They worked their contract days and actually spread paychecks out to cover the summer months. Hence, paid vacation (your words...not mine) days are earned, not graciously given.

Perhaps you should further your own education and become a teacher so you can "ENJOY" those "PAID VACATIONS" as well. What's stopping you?

Teachers work nine months and have their checks spread out over twelve to cover the summer. They get paid for what they earned during that time...it is simply spread out over the course of twelve pay periods / months. No one is preventing you from earning a degree and doing the same. If you think they have an easy job, try walking in their shoes one day with thirty or so children in a classroom. I doubt you'd find it much to your liking.

May not be graciously given, but I bet your enjoying them nonetheless. If I had to do college over again I would go into teaching, but that's not an option at this time.

Teachers are important professionals! I regret that they are not as well paid as others that have similar levels of education in the private market industry but their salaries are tied to what the taxpayer can sustain.

Teachers although they make among the better salaries in small communities do not get rich, do not live in mansions, and do not leave fortunes to their beneficiaries.

Teachers start at mid 30's and only after advancing their credentials and many years of experience, finally break 50k on an annualized salary.

Nurses, OTR Drivers, Business professionals, Miners, Technical Professionals, and many others make more in salary than most teachers and often with less formal education or credentials. I say this not to dismiss their important roles in the community and economy, but in an attempt to dispell the myth that teachers are getting rich from their jobs.

Some have said, "teaching is the highest paid easy work (for some) and the lowest paid hard work (for many), especially if you really care and do your job with zeal.

Rather than attack teachers for their salaries, how about we appreciate those that we know does great work and who tries very hard to help our young people aspire to do well in their lives.

If you have issues with "high end" salaries at the BoE then make it known to your Board member. Your voice matters and your vote counts, if you don't belive me go talk with them and you will see that they will want to keep your support.

There goes stan again, always something about votes. Let see stan if you can understand this private owned businesses don't look to tax payers for salaries, that's the problem with schools, government run. Private schools pay teachers more, you know why stan they don't depend on government using tax payers money. Schools are just like the post office, government run and look what a shape they in. I know you think this might sound crazy, but back when I was in school, teachers did it not for money but for the love of the job, teaching kids. It is sad but I bet anything you can go up to kids that graduated this year from high school and they would be a large percent of them that could only print their names, not know any of the continents, could do math without a calculator or even know who was the first president. Oh I can hear you say that's not important, well look around you today see how dumb our young society has become, can not go anywhere unless a cell phone, I-pad, I-pod or some other electric gadget is in their face. God help them if we ever have a major solar flare that knocks out the electric force field, they stand out in the rain and drown like a poor old dumb turkey will. If you don't know the basics, reading, writing and math then what are you, just another of societies uneducated mass that depend on government to tell you when to eat, sleep, bath or take a crap. You never know what to believe, who you can trust or how to survive on your own. Yea teachers are important, but money does not make a teacher, its dedication, devotion, and hard work that is what any job work having brings out in a honest person.
