    Emphasis added

    Where are you getting your information? In my experience, "often" is a stretch. Perhaps 1 teacher per elementary school can get paid extra for some extra activity. That's 1 out of every 30 (at the best) elementary school teachers. Sure there are more in MS and HS, but still it's not a majority.

    Imagine in LE if only specialty assignments got overtime opportunities (SWAT, FTO, K9, etc). Anyone else didn't get OT. That's what it's like in public education. Sure, some do get OT, but most don't. How do you figure "often?" What's your personal experience with K-12 public education other than a taxpayer? Are/were you or your wife in the public schools?

    Best part is they get vacation weeks in addition to every holiday off. Winter break and long summer breaks.
    They have scheduled time each day for prep work and grading. It's also not uncommon for students to grade each other. Computer scan sheets.... Or "watch this video tape" for an hour while the teacher does other things.

    I'm ok with all of it: just don't make childless people fund it through mandated taxation.

    No extra pay here, planning half period is taken away by meetings almost every day, mandatory after school meetings once a week until 6pm, she works about two hours a night on school work, goes in on every other Saturdays to work in her class, all for no extra pay. They are not allowed to show tapes without approval (rarely happens), even the ones the school pays for in the science kits…

    BTW, I’m not a fan of the government run public education system either and whish it was replaced by a capitalist system, but your full of BS.

    The fact is still the fact-------------------------you get to pick your vacations, they don't.
    How am I complaining by pointing out the facts? If you seek a job with a known vacation period, and a long one at that, how is that a flaw?

    Around here the only thing they get paid extra for is sports or summer school. They sign contracts for each and every "extra" duty

    The vacation week and holidays-----that is no different than any other job-------EXCEPT does YOUR employer mandate your vacation weeks...? Teachers are told what weeks during the 9 month year they will have off........

    Except for the schools that are now going year round..........................3 months on, one month off -----and continue ......

    That is why it is called PUBLIC school. It is funded by the public.--------like most other public services.

    If you do the "real math" you will see that a teacher doesn't get 53,200 for a years work--------------they only get 40,0000 (in this example) They don't have the option of OT or of getting paid for those extra 3 months.

    Sure many get jobs during the summer months, but many don't--------that is why MOST teacher contracts allow for the 9 month pay to be prorated over a 12 month period. I know of some teacher that still just get the 9 checks per year.

    The bottom line is that they are only contracted for 9 months --------------NOT 12 months, so your 53,200 isn't part of the equations.

    Your math doesn't make sense------------------oh it add up, but it just isn't the way real life works.

    EVERY teacher I know, and it is more that one or two, puts in a whole lot of time and personally money into their jobs than most other workers. Once again without overtime.

    Where did the kid get the "item" to sharpen the stick? Was it a knife, or a pair of those dull "butterfly" craft scissors you get 10 for a buck at Ben Franklin?

    And lastly, the kid weighs 82 pounds. Menacing or not with a sharp stick, could not ONE adult be found in the school to quickly disarm the young miscreant? Really, this was not a case of Mr. Milquetoast teacher Vs. Hulk Hogan; has society de-volved so badly that an adult cannot take charge of a situation like this? Yeah, Mr. M might get a scrape or poke on the wrist, put a band aid on it and control the situation, it's in your building after all, surely you must have even minimal procedures to handle such things...
    Thank you Mr Security Guard.

    The average income for most people with a bachelor's is 55k...master's is 75k

    I bet when you went to the confessional, the Priests saw you coming and you had to do a gazillion Hail Mary's. Am I right, LOL?

    LOL. Those were the good ole days, and yep, it was a double wammy cuz then you got "it" again when you got home. I credit Catholic School with not having to take remedial English when I got to college, and I still credit those Nuns to this day with my being able to use punctuation properly. Fear DID work as a motivator, lol.

    That's right! How could I forget taking fear up a notch with the threat of being sent to the PRIEST! LOL. Must be repressed memories.

    Actually after they take out everything it’s more like 2k per month. Most of the cops in my area are taking home in the 50K’s or 60K’s, some supervisors I know are pulling over 100K, and even with mandatory overtime (that I get paid 1.5X for) I work less hours than she does.
    I don’t know why she does it, and to get screwed with by the administration, it’s not good enough that she always, years after year, produces the highest scoring kids in her grade, it’s always wrong.
