You saying you don't know any teachers that complain about pay, while being married to one, is laughable.


You saying this proves how ignorant you are to the profession.

re: Two state employed professions that dont make what they deserve

Good teachers stay after school for three hours a day making lesson plans (which, by the way, must be completely changed every single year because they have to gear them specifically for every single student. It's very possible that a teacher must create 10-15 different lesson plans for every single lesson for every single subject). Good teachers tutor for little to nothing on the weekends and at night during the week


I agree on this. I firmly believe that GOOD teachers have a calling... and while they may not complain about the pay - They know they are worth more than what they get.

It's the retirement plan that really sucks. Especially recently. Some legislation is seriously threatening their livelihoods after retirement.

Teachers are extremely underpaid

Law enforcement scum are way overpaid

What state? Our teachers have an awesome retirement after 20 years.

Pretty large generalizations. I never said they couldn't complain, just that they are paid adequate and have no grounds for a complaint. Hell, I think I should be paid more, but in reality I am adequately compensated.

Everything you listed is what makes a good teacher, but then again is is part of the job.

I had a friend that graduated from Millsaps and she and 3 friends went to Alaska to teach for 4 years. They all rented a house together and came back with an arse TON of money. There are parts of this country where teachers get paid WAAAAAAAAAAAY more than others.


Probably taught in the bush where the pay is highest, and the state subsidizes your housing.

Yup. Really really smart on their parts. They all teach in Louisiana and Mississippi now... Big houses they own, nice cars and boats/jet skis... Stuff you don't usually get as a single teacher (not for a while anyways).

You're correct, teachers never complain about pay. A thread started on TD about teachers not getting paid enough never happens. I am completely wrong.

I dated a girl that started out around 32K teaching elementary. Yeah, that's about bare bones I'd say.

Tough gig. The village don't like non native folk too much and they have actually had to shut down schools temporarily because of threats, and have state troopers escort teachers through town.

If you think about the number of lives these people impact over the course of a career compared to many other professions... Can we really afford to "just pay enough" to keep somebody occupying the desk at the front of the classroom? Because that's what we're doing in Louisiana.

I agree, we should pay a lot more. Hold them responsible for the results they get just like a real job. Take away safety nets for poor performance and test results.

You're right, they get too much for what they do.

Considering teachers hardly control their curriculum . Take Huntsville city schools for example.

My mom teaches in St. Tammany Parrish and they certainly do hold the teachers accountable at her school.
