TO ALL THE TEACHERS - READ THIS TO THE END!!! I saw this on my friend's wall and had to re-post. "Teachers' hefty salaries are driving up taxes, and they only work 9 or 10 months a year. It's time we put things in perspective and pay them for what they do - babysit! We can get that for less than minimum wage.That's right. Let's give them \$3.00 an hour and only the hours they worked; not any of tha......t silly planning time, or any time they spend ...before or after school. That would be \$19.50 a day (...7:45 to 3:00 PM with 45 min. off for lunch and planning-- that equals 6 1/2 hours). Each parent should pay \$19.50 a day for these teachers to baby-sit their children. Now how many students do they teach in a day...maybe 30? So that's \$19.50 x 30 = \$585.00 a day. However, remember they only work 180 days a year. I am not going to pay them for any vacations. LET'S SEE.... That's \$585 X 180= \$105,300 per year. What about those special education teachers and the ones with Master's degrees? Well, we could pay them minimum wage (\$7.75), and just to be fair, round it off to \$8.00 an hour. That would be \$8 X 6 1/2 hours X 30 children X 180 days = \$280,800 per year. Wait a minute... The average teacher's salary (nation wide) is \$50,000. \$50,000/180 days = \$277.77/per day/30 students=\$9.25/6.5 hours = \$1.42 per hour per student--a very inexpensive baby-sitter and they even EDUCATE your kids! Make a teacher smile; repost this to show appreciation for all educators."

Please send my \$280K ASAP! I've been living off of \$35K as a teacher with an advanced degree in FL. I teach 125 kids a day. Oh, and that is before I pay health insurance of \$350 every other week. Think of the chickens I could support on \$280K!
