How many days do they actually work?

Looking at the accumulated sick days (15 days), personal leave days(3), bereavement days(5 days), standard holidays plus the school holidays(only the good Lord knows), etc, etc, etc

7.5 hours per day x 185 days is only 1387.5 hours per year.

8.0 hours per day x 260 days for the average private sector person is 2080.

Holidays for the private sector a couple weeks vacation, New Year, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. 21 Days off per year.

School employees get Christmas break (10 days), MLK Day (1 day), Springbreak (5 days), Memorial Day (1 day), Labor Day (1 day), Thanksgiving (3 days), Summer Vacation (75 days). 96 Days off per year.

This is not even a full time job, 1387 hours/52 weeks = 26.67 hours per week.

A person making $36,000 per year under this schedule is making

$36,000 / 1387 hours =$25.96/hour

$60,000 / 1387 hours =$43.26/hour

$75,000 / 1387 hours =$54.07/hour

Did I forget to mention the 14% that the taxpayers toss in to their retirement account? The teachers can put in up to an additional 10% if they like, but the taxpayers put in a guaranteed extra 14% that does not come out of the teacher's salary.

$36,000 teacher is actually getting $25.96 +$3.63 =$29.59/hour

$60,000 teacher is actually getting $43.26 +$6.06 =$49.32/hour

$75,000 teacher is actually getting $54.07 +$7.57 =$61.64/hour

Pretty good hourly wages

Take out the vacation days and the 185 days turns into 164 days x 7.5 per day = 1230 hours per year. The 36K teacher really makes $33.36/hour and the 60K makes $55.61/hour. That's a ton more than a nurse makes keeping you alive at the Valley and they work 2000 plus hours

I definitely wasted my time in college, to think I would only have to work 2/3 of a year to make the same money I am making now, have guaranteed lifetime employment, a guaranteed retirement program I don't have to fund, and my summers off, two weeks at Christmas, and a week for Spring Break. Who knew?

Teachers work 185 days genius, that's what they are paid for. And this is the reason teachers need unions, people with Math Majors logic get elected to school boards and make major decisions for education.

My kids get 1 day for New Year, 1 Day for Martin Luther King Day, 1 day for President's Day, 6 days for Spring Break, 1 day for Memorial Day, 1 day for Labor Day, 3 days for Thanksgiving Day, 6 days at Christmas

There is probably one or two others that I did not count, but that is 20. How many get that many standard days off in the private sector?

Tell us when they start and when they finish, I don't know.

Most folks that I know who work full time work 250 days per year with a couple weeks off.

They start the first day of school and finish one day after the students are out. I thought you were smarter than that JW? If you want teachers and your children to work and go to school longer talk to your politicians, they are the ones who control that, not the teachers.

Teachers are only paid for days they are contracted for. They do not get paid for any of those days you mention nor do they get paid in the summer.

October........22 days
November....19 days
December....14 days
January.........21 days
February......19 days
March..........16 days
April..........21 days
May..........21 days
Total..........175 days

175 days x 7.25 hours per day = 1268.75 hours of instruction per year

Paid Lunch 175 days x .5 hours per day = 87.5 hours of paid lunches

1268.75 - 87.5 = 1181.25 hours of instruction per year

Normal full time employment is 52 weeks x 40 hours per week = 2080 hours per year

How much do our teachers make per hour based on their hours of instruction per year?

$33,500 / 1181.25 =$28.36/hour of instruction

$48,000 / 1181.25 =$40.63/hour of instruction

$60,000 / 1181.25 =$50.79/hour of instruction

$75,000 / 1181.25 =$63.49/hour of instruction

How much would you make if you worked a full time job in the private sector at the same rates

$28.36 x 2080 =$58,988/year

$40.63 x 2080 =$84,510/year

$50.79 x 2080 =$105,643/year

$63.49 x 2080 =$132059/year

Living on food stamps? Underpaid? Not up to community standards?

I think not.

While many of us are working this week, often TWO part time jobs, meaning shifts scattered throughout the week and on weekends;
Aren't our Springboro teachers enjoying Spring break, Monday through Friday; and isn't their paychecks set up to receive payment throughout this week that they are on Spring break;
even though they do not come to the classroom?

Perhaps public school teachers would be compensated for their work more equally with the private sector, IF teachers were simply paid an hourly rate for each hour they are in the classroom? And why should teachers be PAID vacation for the holidays when school is closed, or be paid for spring and summer break, IF they are not in the classroom?

You have no CLUE. Teachers are paid an hourly rate and they are only paid for those hours. Do some research genius. Having their checks stretched out to cover 26 weeks is not a benefit.

It may be true that I have no CLUE.
But I have a job; and I am not bullying you to give me more of your money; Do you have a clue WHY teachers always whine that they are victims of their own choosing?
