You have to be kidding! Teachers work a 40-hour week for 9 months of the year; let them rest & relax the other three months. As for professional development, what about offering teachers an opportunity for paid sabbatical leave, as is the case for tenured college faculty, for that? That would give them time away from the kids (a good thing most would agree) and an opportunity to really concentrate on their studies. And the colleges would make a bundle.
