What a Teacher makes

Clearly there's a difference by district.

This link shows you what you need to know to make an educated decision: The 11% of the population (that SB5 wants to have pay a bit more into their own pensions) are doing much better than the rest of us who are paying for our own pensions.

Select your Ohio school district.
Select year 2010 (last one completed.)

-Scroll through the education employees' names
-Look at salaries.
-Divide salary by the number of full days in the year they are paid to work according to the chart.
-Multiply by five (days per week) to see how many work weeks they have.
-Multiply by the number of work weeks YOU have to work in a year (probably 50 or 52) to see what they would make in a full work year.

Keep in mind they can get a summer job or work after they retire at age 54 while they're collecting their retirement.

For pension info:
-Hold curser over green calculator to see what your taxes are paying into their luxurious pensions so that they can retire after 30 years at age 54.
-Type their pension into the box on the left to see the amount they will have at retirement.

Over paid?
Under paid?
You decide.

Don't forget to calculate Social Security into your calculation for your pension. Ohio teachers do not get Social Security. Our pension IS our Social Security.

Teachers don't have to PAY into social security either.

Yes, we don't pay 4.8% that the private sector does for Social Security. We were paying 10% toward our pensions for as long as I can remember. Now, we pay 11% toward our pensions and by 2015 will be paying 15% of our pensions. We should get a better pension than Social Security provides. Also, SB5 didn't dictate that we had to pay more into our pensions, the law already stated that we had to guarantee that our pension was secure, so after the 2009 crash (caused by Wall Street and the Banks, not caused by teachers, by the way) things were in the works to change our pensions by paying more, working longer, and getting less (which needed to be done and I am not complaining). I was at meetings in Columbus that kept us informed of what was needed and already being proposed to the legislators, and that was while Ted Strickland was in office, not Kasich and his SB5. Finally, as to what we make, people only focus on what teachers at the top make, when they should look at the average they are paying for teacher overall. In Ohio, I believe it is around %55,000 or less. What is our children's education worth? Is that not a fair price to pay? Do you want someone with no education to be in front of the classroom teaching your children? Who will go into teaching if you pay them what someone who flips burgers makes? Just saying!

Depends on how much liberal propaganda you're peddling in the classroom.
