quote: You do know that many teachers don't get paid during that 3 months off right? Or if they do its because they spread their salary across the whole year instead of opting for it just in 9 months? That most get 2nd jobs to cover the gap or teach summer school?
quote: As much as I despise teachers unions, they are not public government unions. They are independently run. Granted they might as well be in many cases since they run lock step with the Democrat party. Not to say all the teachers that are a part of them do though either.
quote: I would, myself, like a job where I can have not only 3 months off (at least) per year but notwithstanding that, get 2 - 4 weeks vacation, all to babysit little kids and tell them terrible lies and half truths of the past of our country. Add on the health benefits and guarenteed retirement, all on the taxpayers dime, and its a darn good job. However, I feel that while I could probably be a decent babysitter, it is a terrible way to make a living if you have any sort of conscience.
