    Well the Superintendent wasn't bluffing.

    Though the article is wrong when it says public teachers make more than private ones. And for other industries too, etc.

    Geez fricking Lousie.

    I make half of that, and go in early every freaking day to get stuff done, work at my computer at lunch writing IEP's or lesson plans, and bring home papers to grade, etc..which I know a TON of teachers do.


    For $70,000-$78,000 I'll move there and take one of their jobs.....................

    Teachers making in excess of $70k annually, while the town's mean salary is $22K AND their kids were failing? These teachers should have been fired years ago, IMHO!

    This is my point, and which is why the article is wrong.

    Annie said she'd move here too, you should. :D :lol:

    One of the cases where the union protection is strong. Though I must say, it is interesting that they could of avoided all this by doing minor things that would benefited them.

    Good. If they dont want to put in the time to teach the children, why the heck should they be paid?
