Do you think Claiborne County teachers are underpaid at an average pay of 255.00 per day plus health insurance coverage paid for by the county until they reach age 65?

School teacher pay for Claiborne county is about right for this poor rural county, which is close to the lowest pay in the state. If you think 255 is high you need to get a life.

I don't need to get a life. You need to get you a job in the real world. With teachers having 13 students per teacher ratio in Claiborne County and more than 70 more teachers than the state requires, the taxpayers need to get a life and take county government back from the school teachers.

Okay, let's put more kids in the classroom, give them less individual attention and less help learning with 30 kids in the class and an hour to get the material across to all 30 of them (this totally works! Ask people who can't read yet still passed high school over 10 years ago!), and watch test scores drop some more. Sure, the thing this county needs is less educators ...so that we have more people with your thought process. Ugh.

Personally, if I had kids,$255 a day would seem like pocket change to give them a great education in which they actually are taught. We don't need cheap babysitting for parents who don't want their children educated, we need teachers who teach. Sorry if that takes up a cent more than your cheap butt wants to give.

Of all the things going on in Claiborne county, School teachers being over paid is not one of them. What about our spending for homeland security.

$255 a day...where in the world did you get such an over exaggerated number? 13 kids per teacher...not even close! Try double or even triple that! Amazing how people can complain about things they know nothing about! Volunteer at any school to get a dose of reality!

Obviously you're no teacher, and you sure don't comprehend what you do read. I hate to break it to but teachers don't ever work a 8 hour day, more like twelve, and they are not finished when they leave the school. They also do not get paid for working all the ball games, both football and basketball and volleyball, and BB, and all the volunteer work they do with all the extra curricular activies, ie" BETA, etc. As for the insurance, that is almost a thousand dollars monthly, out of the teacher's check, and no it isn't paid by the county, only a stipend is paid by the "county". This to a teacher that has to deal with the little liars, thieves, druggies, alcoholics, and that's the parents, and the little repeats they have following along in their footsteps. You should try it, if you have the balls!

No one forces a person to be a teacher. You know the risk and pay rate going in. Don't like the risk or the pay, find another job.

Finally! That's the thing. Half of the people who think they know what is going couldn't and wouldn't handle the job!

If a teacher is in for the money, that teacher won't make it through first semester. There's much more money to be made, with their qualifications. Teachers do their job, for the love of the children!

There is no school, public school, in the state of TN that has a ratio of 1/13, even in Special Classes. If you think you can do a better job, get your degree, plenty of openings, no one wants to put up with these stinking brats, all these drugged up parents keep bringing into this hell of a world. Out of their house and their hair, and no direction provided by parents, for these poor kids. Oh yeah, that's a dream job. Someone doesn't have a clue!

I don't write without researching the statistics.The numbers are right. You have the same amount of respect for your students as you would have for mangy, stray dogs. If you don't want your job, do us a favor and quit.There are close to eighty more teachers in Claiborne County than the state requires. You may not have noticed, but, there is a higher percentage of parents each year choosing private or home schooling.I would like to see the day when parents could choose public or private schools. In other words , I would like to see an end to your monopoly of perpetually grabbing all the school funds and giving back educational incompetence.

I know they don't work an eight hour day. I see the school zone lights flashing in the middle of the afternoon and everyone leaving.Oh, yes, I agree the educational system system spends an outrageous amount of time and money on sports. If you are a teacher and your writing is an example of your competence, the little liars, thieves, druggies and repeats won't be well educated enough to do anything else.

You must be a product of the local school system, you obviously have no clue. The day they work, begins as early as 6:50AM until what ever the time is they get their papers graded, grades recorded after they get home, around nine if they're lucky. I don't know where you live, but I know a bunch of teachers that would love to be leaving in the middle of the afternoon. Too bad you're talking about 3:15-3:30, that's when the buses pick up. NO, I'm not a teacher, you couldn't pay me enough money to go through the bull shit teachers have to. Obviously you're not one either, or you would know the real hours our teachers have to pull. Ironically, they only get paid for nine months out of the year, no comp time for all those late hours pulled, PT night, meetings, IPP, etc.

Please, direct me as to any mistake in my post; I will gladly clarify for you! You're probably one of "those" parents, guess I got too close to home, hum?

I drive past the Springdale school at 6am and 5pm every day. The parking lot is EMPTY both times. I guess those teachers working long hour walk to work.
