@ McBoozarilla - no I got the point of the video. I got the joke. It was funny. I just don`t like the teachers nor the stupid parents so they both get the bird.

Wow! 800 bucks a week! That`s it! I know truck drivers that make more money! I knew teachers really didn`t make much..but that really isn`t that much money.That is horrible.

Gerry, you totally missed the point of this video, which is 100% correct.

Here in Chicago they`re extending the school day by an hour, without having the budget to pay the teachers for the extra hour, after just breaking a contract by not giving them their promised raises. Needless to say I`m most likely not going to start my senior year on time thanks to the dickhead mayor and idiot CEO of CPS (the teachers are without a doubt going on strike if they don`t reach an agreement). All of my teachers go above and beyond for their students, and are excellent teachers. What needs to be fixed is the schools on the south side, which weigh our scores down heavily. And you can`t fix the schools without fixing the neighborhoods they are in. My teacher made a good point, how do they expect a student whose main worry is if they`ll get home safely or if they`ll have anything to eat that night to care about trigonometry for gods sake. It starts at home, which starts in the community.

I do not mind teachers getting paid a fair amount for the important job of educating children.

I object to them getting paid for NOT doing that, which is what`s happened.

I`m a teacher. I`ve mentioned that on here once or twice. I just got paid today. My check wasn`t $800 for a week. It was $900 for two weeks.
Post-Grad isn`t strictly required, but you do have to "continue your education" until you retire or there are no other classes you can take. I have a license for 7-12 grade integrated science. I can teach any science your kids can take. I have taken all the same classes as a pre-med student, and some they don`t have to take. Summers off are a bit of a joke because if I don`t take classes to continue my education I make sure I work for a few hours a day getting ready for the following school year. I love teaching, but parents are freaking morons. Most of them take their kid`s side. They think their kid can do no wrong. I see them at their worst.

@ForSquirel: "Please tell me where a teacher can get guaranteed retirement w/o contribution and paid summers off and we`ll move."

Pennsylvania. And if you do choose to work summers, you get paid extra. Google moving companies.

"You`re forgetting the summers off"

Summers off with meetings, required conventions, rewriting the curriculum maps, writing new lessons plans, and jumping through hoops for whatever new legislation has come down the pipeline.

"Post-grad is not required."

The credential program classes are post-grad units on transcripts.

"Yep... for a profession which requires a four-year degree plus two years of post-grad education."

Post-grad is not required. You`re forgetting the summers off, guaranteed pensions (with little or no individual contribution).

In Pennsylvania, the average public school teacher makes 60% *more* than the average Pennsylvanian.

"wow $800 a week! some would kill for that kind of money"

Yep... for a profession which requires a four-year degree plus two years of post-grad education. You get to start at $30k a year!!! That`s only half of what someone would have in any other profession at that education level.

"not my fault... my students are drat)ng smart but have to be dumbed down by creation believing pricks at home..."

There fixed that one for you.

When I was about 20 my Aunt who taught 2nd or 3rd grade asked me to come into class and help her with something. I can`t remember what now. The class was pretty well behaved save for one boy. He got permission to go to the bathroom. He came out of the bathroom and found me waiting for him. I grabbed him firmly by the front of his shirt and lifted half his weight off the floor. I them told him firmly in a low voice that he was going to go back in that class room and he was going to be respectful to my Aunt and to his classmates or we were going to have another chat.
He did so and guess what? He began to behave.

A day later my Aunt had remarked about the kids sudden change and I told her what had happened. A look of horror spread across her face as this could get her fired. Well it didn`t and the young man was not much of a problem anymore. Teachers need the authority to whoop a little ass, they don`t have it and kids know it.
