Teachers are paid too much! I'm fed up with teachers and their hefty salaries for only 9 month's work. What we need here is a little perspective. If I had my way, I'd pay teachers BABY SITTING WAGES.
That's right. Instead of paying all these taxes, I'd give teachers $5 an hour. And, I'm only going to pay them for 5 hours, not planning time or lunch or recess. That would be $25 a day. Each parent should pay $25 a day for these teachers to babysit their children. Even if they have more than one child, it's still cheaper than private day care.
Now, how many children do they teach a day...maybe 20? That's $25 x 20 = $500 a day. But remember, they only work 180 days a year! I'm not going to pay for vacations. $500 x 180 = $90,000.
(hold on...is this calculator broken?)
What will teachers with 10 years of experience and a masters degree? Let's pay them MINIMUM WAGE just to be fair. We can round that off to $9.00 an hour, times 5 hours, times 20 children: $9 x 5 x 20, that's $900 a day, times 180 days...we should pay them $162,000 a year.
See what I did there? Let's say THANK YOU to our teachers before they even start the year. We owe them SO MUCH MORE!
