Cost of license renewal every five years is actually a little higher here is the breakdown.<quoted text>
On point 3 you claim that it costs 18000 to renew your teaching license every 5 years over 30 years. Are you claiming the 5 year license renewal costs 3000 dollars.
I will use the cheapest tuition rate around Wright State $417 per hr.
Every five years required to take 6 semester hours (two classes) of graduate work.$417 x 6 =$2502
Average cost of books $350 for two classes.
I will do the more simple math for JW. Let's assume avg teacher takes two course the same nights M/W for one semester. Trip to WSU from Springboro is 50 miles round trip. 100 miles per week x 18 weeks = 1800. Let's assume you vehicle gets 30 mpg. 1800/30 = 60 gallons of gas. 60 x $3.50 a gallon =$210
ODE application fee for renewal =$250 per license additional fees are added for teachers with multiple licenses +$15 for fingerprinting. Avg for single license $265
Time = classroom, travel, studying, typing papers,..etc? Not sure? You can do your own figures what 10 classroom hours + study time outside of class is worth. JW most likely would want to figure below minimum wage so lets say $5 per hour. Lets figure average of additional 5 hours for travel time and course work. 15 per week.$75 x 18 weeks =$1350.
Application renewal fees =$265
Total =$4467 x five license renewals for 30 year career =$26,802.00.
These are today's figures we all know the cost of college education is increasing at a much higher rate than anything else. And please noticed for some of these I used much lower figures.
That's a lot for someone JW wants to pay $30,000,00 per year. Most teachers are already paying back student loans. I guess they can live in their parents basement for most of their career.
These are the facts about teachers that JW does not want everyone to know.
