RE: TEACHERS WALK OUT

Teachers should be able to make a decent living and pay their basic bills. When that's not happening, the quality of education and priority on education declines.

To me, that's evident when looking at how (un)well American students perform academically when compared to other advanced developed nations in which education is a high societal/governmental priority and teachers are valued and well paid.

Yes it is, and that's a lot better than most states pay. Of course, our cost of living is higher than a lot of states too.

The teachers on strike in West Virginia, Oklahoma and Kentucky weren't making nearly that much, even when factoring in the lower cost of living.

On average nationally, teacher salaries have slipped 1.3% since 2000. Teachers' real salaries aren't just staying stagnant on a national level, they've been going downward for over 15 years.

But, that national average hides wide state-by-state variances. While teacher salaries in Arizona, Indiana, and North Carolina have fallen at least 12%...... teachers in a few states (Massachusetts, North Dakota, and Wyoming) have seen double-digit increases. Lots of inconsistency when it comes to education in this country.

Anyway, there is a 17% national pay differential between teachers and other college-educated professionals, with the teachers making less of course. Why? Twenty-five years ago, the gap was just 1.8%.

I never knew the political leanings of my teachers in school nor those of my professors in college. Weird that your kid's teachers would share theirs with your kids.

RE: TEACHERS WALK OUT

I've seen schools that will buy products from a single vendor. They do not put out anything for bids. Paper, books, food, or any other thing they need. I'm not saying they all do but many do not have a regular purchaser that takes care of getting better deals. Some districts pool their resources and that would get better pricing. Little stupid things like that that would give schools the ability to pay better wages.
Some vendors hear the word "government" and think they have a key to the safe. I'm sure you've heard the term "government job" charge them high.
Some schools are on top of things others are not.
Another administration job that would probably pay more than being a teacher.

RE: TEACHERS WALK OUT

As far as teachers brainwashing kids go, you hear that crap on the internet. It's not a rampant thing like anything else out there in the big wide internet when you figure how many people there are in the states it just gets blown out of proportion like anything else the political correct warriors deem unacceptable. If any stupid stuff goes down at my kids school I will be the first person on it, but so far nothing unacceptable has happened.

We have had a few loonies, but I guess nearly every state has.

Every community has something, much in the same way there is an asshole in every group of people.

I just read that public school teachers in Kentucky do not receive Social Security benefits. How can that be?
