    Some students (read: most students) SUCK. Funny how teachers are supposed to be “devoted.” Why can’t teaching be just a job like any other (particularly when the pay is so bad)?

    Every job expects results; if your results are bad, you tend to be held in disdain and/or lose your job. So if by “like any other job” you mean “held accountable for your results” then yes, it should be like any other job.

    And $40k to $55k (the national average for teachers in the US) is not a bad salary for 9 – 10 months out of the year.

    Ah, spoken like people who’ve probably logged endless hours in public education.

    As far as I can tell, there’s no link at all between our devotion and how our pension fund does–it has more to do with the number of exotic vacations the executives in charge of the fund take, and the number of schools that hire double-dipping retirees.

    Too bad, she seemed so enlightened in the other comics…

    40k-55K??? I’m a third year teacher making $29k. And it’s ten months, not nine.

    It’s all twelve months, and they work all day and into the night. They have to make lesson plans, grade papers, plan classes, and often manage a budget. be nice to our teachers!!

    AND teachers are required to have a master’s degree. I think teacher is among the most underpaid and underappreciated jobs.
