Gross Misuse of Funds

Marion, IL

#1 Apr 30, 2012
Just searched the teachers salaries for District 168. I am shocked to learn that they make so much. Most of them make between $60-$80k. Why all the bellyaching about poor, pitiful teachers not making enough money? I can't believe we pay so much for mediocre (at best) education for our children. When I was a student there the teachers were a huge joke and did very little to prepare me for college (yes, I went to college and earned my B.S. degree). I went to school with many of the current teachers, most of which have no business teaching our children due to lack of common sense and low moral standards. Maybe the district should clean house and find some teachers that are worthy of teaching our children.

I graduated fchs in 2004 and I think all the teachers are wonderful! They did everything they could to help me prepare for college. Mrs. Little was especially my favorite! I think they deserve their salaries. U work with kids and teens all day and u will agree!

I don't know of many jobs that allow you to earn $80k and take two months off in the summer, a couple weeks off around Christmas as well as 14-24 PTO and sick days.

To THE MOUTH: We don't have to name names. Jane already named them for us. Everyone on that list(with the exception of less than a handful of teachers that actually make you WORK for your grade) should be ashamed of themselves for raping the taxpayers. I seriously don't know how they are able to show their face out in public. And, what really makes me sick is how some of them go around town acting like they are all high and mighty when in reality they have been divorced numerous times, have extra marital affairs, sex in the school, have illegitimate kids, bankruptsies and DIU's. And don't even get me started on the douche they just let go because he had some inappropriate text conversations with a minor. IS THIS REALLY WHO WE WANT TEACHING OUR KIDS???? No wonder poor little WF is all run down and skanky. All of the money is being pissed away on deadbeat teachers in your school system.
Set up then....

I come from a family of educators and I will guarantee you that there is not a single person ranting and raving on here that has the dedication and patients to do what most teachers do. I know I don't.

Not only do they have to deal with increasingly unruly kids. But, throw in the "my kid does no wrong" parents and the stress multiplies exponentially.

Most of your jobs end at 5 when you leave work. Good, dedicated teachers spend almost every night and weekend in preparation for the coming week or grading papers.

If you took the time to earn your degree in education and then returned to school to achieve you masters degree (which most of the people you've listed here have, according to the link that was posted) they by all means feel free to criticize.

Why is it that when people work hard and have a decent career, the folks that haven't and don't feel the need to hate?

If you really want to know why your kids are failing and your town is "run down and skanky"...I suggest you start with a glance in the mirror.

I went to school there many of the teachers took their job as a joke. Take Calvert for example. He sits around, scribbles on the chalk board a little, and cracks jokes with the jocks. Noto sits at his desk and expects the kids to teach themselves, t Ricci wastes his day away roaming the halls along with Karoski, Wayer has an attendance problem of his own, Hamp sits his fat ass behind a desk with his feet propped up all day, and so on. Do I really need to go any further? I think the grades hook teachers probably do work their tails off, but the majority of the high shool teachers certainly do not. And if you want to talk about parents thinking their kids do no wrong usually teachers kids are the worst. I've known many WF teachers kids to deal drugs, drink and drive, commit suicide, get pregnant or knock teenage girls up, drop out of college, etc and all their parents think their Angels! And their day ends at 3:30pm, not 5. So sorry. For being so bogged down preparing and grading why are they all hanging out at the FCCC, and Moose? I don't think anyone on here said their kids were failing by the way. Mine certainly Isn't. I just don't think he is getting the most bang for our buck. For pete's sake let's funnel some of that money to new textbooks or something worthwhile!

I'm not saying there aren't lazy teachers out there. You obviously have a job. Have you ever worked with someone who was incompetent or worthless in your opinion? Did that in turn mean you were worthless or incompetent? This thread is a ridiculous generalization of all teachers in YOUR district.

If you want to change the way things are done, step up and speak your mind somewhere other than topix. And for the love of god have a bit of respect. First a woman who I believe has passed away is referenced and then a child who took his own life. Your kid might not be failing school, but if he's taught that spewing nonsense about someone dead child on the internet to try and prove a point is even remotely acceptable, then he'll end up failing life in the long run.....

Walk a mile in a teacher's shoes, it will open your eyes. The reason WF is so skanky is because of ignorant people like yourself. Some teachers make what they deserve and some don't. The same as any profession. But I would guess you have no profession to speak of if you know what that means.

Hell, they need a lot more because they are teaching your shits that can't do anything wrong. It's always someone else's fault and these kids have no respect for anyone, not even their own parents. You parents let them run the house and could care less what they are doing as long as they are not in your hair. I see this everyday where I live. White trash, white trash that is all WF has any more. No one wants to work but collect welfare. What does that teach the kids, let someone else take care of you and be responsible for you. I have worked my whole life and now trying to enjoy retirement but I look around this town and see nothing but dead beats.

I find a couple of things interesting here...

1) A long time ago (early 90's) the DA used to publish the teacher salaries. Do they still do that or have they stopped because they know it will cause an outrage?

2)If you google the salaries of professors at SIU, you will find that the teachers in WF are making the same as college professors that have doctorate degrees. This just shows that the salaries for District 168 is EXTREMELY off course!

3)The truth hurts. I read the comment about the teachers kids and what all they have done- drugs, dui, suicide, etc. I'm sorry to say but it is the truth. No names are mentioned and it is very public knowledge, so why try to sweep it under the rug? Why not reach out to those teachers that failed in their own homes with their own kids so we can educate THEM so they don't fail our kids, too?

4) As for the comment about letting unruly kids run the house... have you not been in the school lately? "School" sure isn't the same place where we learned. The teachers should gain more control over their classrooms, give harsher( or any punishment would be an improvement since WF likes to sweep everything under the rug for families with the right last name) punishments and stop allowing the disrespect and chaos. For the teachers that are still teaching now that I had when I went there, I can pretty much guarantee you that Little, Puckett, Danny Thomas, Dan Minor, and Scott Samples drive a tight ship that doesn't put up with lazy, loud mouth, disrespectful little shits that act like they are entitled to special treatment. Maybe they should be asked to lead some continuing education for the district.

5) I am POSITIVE that some of the citizens (including myself), would advocate for salary reform but who would we go to that would actually listen and take action? The school board is just as guilty because they approve of it all. Why? Because, in my opinion, they are all buddies and you take care of your friends!

I know! I remember grading each others papers when I went to school there. It was common practice is most classes. And the sad thing is that we would cheat and give our friends better grades than they deserved. We thought we were doing them a favor, but in reality we were actually hurting each others academic future. Maybe someone from the press will read our comments and have the board of education investigate or something. But, the hard reality is that if the staff knows they are being watched they will play by the rules while big brother is in town.
