I am married to a teacher and not a librarian and I thnk you should take another look.

What other industry make there employees pay for there own continuing education.
6 years of college and start at 26,000 per year. That may be ok up there near the thumb but not here on the the coast.

Well, my daughter is a teacher and my wife works for a school district so we will have to agree to disagree.

Well If you think 50-80K per year isn't good money then I guess you and I will have to agree to disagree. Of course, the teachers don't start there but they work their way up from about 28K to those levels in a fairly short time.

We need to keep one thing in mind guys. What your state pays it's teachers in comparison to your cost of living may be significantly different than mine. I know the figures I quoted above are accurate and very generous here in the state of Michigan.

Well, my wife is part of the Administrative Staff and she doesn't make 80K, so yes, we have to agree to disagree.

That's fine... How much does your superintendent make? In our area it hovers around 200k with many making significantly more.

What does that have to do with anything? Does a wall street banker get his money from my taxes without having any accountability for his performance?

When he does we can maybe make a valid comparison between the two, but just so you know. I'm no champion for those on Wall Street. I think their shenanigans are a big part of the economy problems we are experiencing now.

I see and so because of that you think it's OK for everyone else to make cuts and tighten their belts so that the teachers can be insulated against the effects of the largest economic melt down since the great depression.

The rest of us however see the situation for what it is. The budgets ARE getting cut out of necessity. People are willingly making concessions all over the place. So far, the teachers have dug in their heels and have not. When time comes and those contracts are up for re-negotiations, the rest of us will remember that.
