What people don't understand is that teachers can only take those days on workdays...not when students are in school. Those days are needed to catch up on school work, grading, etc. therefore, many teachers don't take the days and just take a loss.

The pressures of every day life these days are becoming very over whelming. People will not be able to take MUCH needed vacations because NO ONE can affrord time off without pay. This will effect people's performances on the job which will reflect unto our children. GOD help this world.

Force you to take time off and force you to pay for your own sub ($55 a day) Got to love the education system

I say let the teachers teach. And let whiny parents that complain because their little angels are misunderstood kis tail. And unruly kids? Give 'em a good swat on the backside. I have heard parents say, "nobody gonna whip my child but me." That is the surest sign that there is a parent that WILL NOT spank their child. The same educational values that reared the 'greatest generation' would work today.
