Should realize that they r lucky to have such a job. No where else in America is this tolerable especially at the expense of tax payers.

Yes school taxes are high. It seems public education is as mismanaged as our government. Don't blame the folks lowest on the totem pole for that. If you think school taxes are ridiculous now, can you imagine what would happen to them when we tack on two more months of school? I believe our system is so broken, two more months of "learning" won't raise any scores! At best it will keep some of the kids busy.

"Lucky?" I don't think so. Teachers' salaries have historically been predicated on the assumption of 10 month employment; it's one reason why starting salaries for other professions w/ comparable educational requirements are higher. Beyond that, I don't think your observation that this is at taxpayers' expense holds much water when corporate CEOs make millions, pay no taxes, and vacation on their yachts while spending their money from off shore accounts. Your posts consistently reflect an anti teacher bias, not the "Truth"

You make the obvious mistake of comparing a CEO in the private sector with a teacher in the public sector. It smells of the same old tired rhetoric we hear all the time from the public school teacher and administrator union stalwarts. Just because you read it in you union newsletter doesn't make it so.

Read more closely, Skippy-I did not compare the teacher and the CEO. I compared salaries with the same educational background. My CEO comment went to your contention that teachers enjoy the summer at the taxpayers' expense. And I didn't get the CEO tax data from a union newsletter; the Wall Street Journal has run several articles detailing the salaries, bonuses and taxes paid (or lack thereof) by CEOs of major companies across the country. The only "tired old rhetoric" I see here is Fox News' dog and pony show (which you obviously spend far too much time watching). But that's OK; when I encounter people like you who cannot be persuaded by facts, I'll just defer to Teachers' comment: sounds like someone's jealous. You're right, Skippy- we have our summers off, we enjoy Cadillac health plans, we have an incredible defined pension plan, and we get a raise every year. I guess you should have been a teacher...

teachers get their summers off just to piss your jealous a$$ off.You whine and whine like like the nerdy bastard that you are. Good! Keep posting your false misinformed quotes. It still doesn't change anything. Especially your jealous attitude toward teachers. You were probably the kid in gym class who complained that others were hitting you in the head while playing dodgeball. Now get to work this summer you fruit cake.

These are the same people who would bitch the loudest if their kids had to go to school all year too. You can't have it both ways. It is either the kids go to school all year and the teachers work all year or we continue with the current system.
