Dick, There alot of other professions that have to take continuing ed classes too, and pay out of their own pockets. Teachers went through school like everyone else and know what goes on in schools. Other professions have to deal with their bosses as well, sometimes it is cut throat out there. A raise is not a given for everyone, the last 6-7 years. I'll admit teacher jobs are not easy, but so are other peoples jobs not easy. Why did you become a teacher???

KHD : I did go to the web site and like I said $ 45 - 60 k a year : Mr.Head are we to live in the past and not have Public Schools ? I think not. Yes it's gotten of of control but with reforms the schools again return to why they were establish to do . The Big bucks are the administrators the the double dipping games these people play. ...IE . Keith Marty and Jim Shaw in Racine Wis. As well as other Public employees like triple dipping State rep Coggs.

The call to become a teacher is personal. However, many will say that children are our country's greatest resource and that being a part of their education is an honor. I am quite sure that those working in the "cut-throat" environment of the private sector work very hard. Why don't they become a teacher? Lack of respect and financial loss. Oh, and that thing about working for the good of self rather than society.

My experience in a teacher's ed program is that it was filled with people who fell into it because they couldn't figure out what they wanted to do in college. Some were smart and capable and others were not, just like anywhere else in life. Teachers should not be denegrated as a whole, nor should they be romanticized about answering a calling for the "good of the society". It's a job.
