9-5 with the occasional late night is the same as 6:30am to 4:00pm with a couple days of grading papers, lesson planning, setting up labs, and meetings after school.
But, like I said earlier. There are way to many teachers who don't pull their weight. They show up with the kids and leave at the same time. I'm glad i'm at a school now where that doesn't happen. In the south especially, we have to find away to get more college grads in the classroom who can make a difference. $$ is the easiest way.
