thoughts about teacher pay....

Saw this on facebook and wanted to share ...

Are you sick of high paid teachers? Teachersí hefty salaries are driving up taxes, and they only work 9 or 10 months a year! Itís time we put things in perspective and pay them for what they do - baby sit! We can get that for less than minimum wage.

Thatís right. Letís give them $3.00 an hour and only the hours they worked; not any of that silly planning time, or any time they spend before or after school. That would be $19.50 a day (7:45 to 3:00 PM
with 45 min. off for lunch and plan ó that equals 6 1/2 hours).

Each parent should pay $19.50 a day for these teachers to baby-sit their children.

Now how many do they teach in dayÖmaybe 30? So thatís $19.50 x 30 = $585.00 a day. However, remember they only work 180 days a year!!! I am not going to pay them for any vacations.

LETíS SEEÖ. Thatís $585 X 180= $105,300 peryear. (Hold on! My calculator needs new batteries).

What about those special education teachers and the ones with Masterís degrees? Well, we could pay them minimum wage ($7.75), and just to be fair, round it off to $8.00 an hour. That would be $8 X 6 1/2 hours X 30 children
X 180 days = $280,800 per year.

Wait a minute ó thereís something wrong here! There sure is!

The average teacherís salary (nation wide) is $50,000. $50,000/180 days = $277.77/per day/30 students=$9.25/6.5 hours = $1.42 per hour per studentĖa very inexpensive baby-sitter and they even EDUCATE your kids!)

WHAT A DEAL!!!!

Nice. I'm still ticked off that the average across the country is $50,000. State base here is $27,000 and after 4 years teaching I make $30,000.

I love it. I just wish we were paid as much as baby sitters.

this is the third posting of this I've seen on this board over this weekend alone, but it never gets old. I wish they calculated our salaries that way! If people think we're babysitters, then we should be paid accordingly

Wow! I'm seriously surprised it's not higher in such a large state!

more thoughts on teacher's pay:

I get jealous of some salaries compared to cost of living.... someone should do a whole analysis on that, so we can all see which state is the best paid (comparatively) and we can all move and battle it out for jobs

Meanwhile, our former states will get their acts in gear and offer more money so we can move back.

Wise1: State base is $27,000 everywhere. The districts can choose to pay more than that, so you probably live in a district that has money. My school however does not. They only pay beginning teachers $2,000 over base, but this may be changing. I'm at a title one school with 87% free and reduced lunch. Sure I could move to a bigger district and make more money, but then my cost of living would also go up...

DH is looking for a job at bigger districts as I type.

BTW I'm in North Texas...south of FW.

Ok, wow I didn't know that there was such a large pay difference amongst the cities. Real eye-opener.
