Public school teacher's suck. The kids are 25th in math and science. Children should punish their teachers for ruining their chances of having a nice life.

The teachers union has proven the higher the teacherís salary and benefits, the smarter the students. The average teacher there makes $75K/yr.(look it up) Let's do some arithmetic. Teachers are in school teaching students 180 days a year. The school day is 7 hours long. That comes to $416.66 a day or $59.52 an hour PLUS full benefits and retirement for the average teacher. No wonder the union says they can't make it. Good thing they get 16 weeks of vacation a year or they would leave and find better jobs.
