After buying teacher support before last election, JBE capitulates to teacher raises
LINK

quote:

In an about face, Gov. John Bel Edwards' office Thursday proposed a pay raise of about $500 for teachers, less than two weeks after the governor's initial spending plan excluded any such hike and triggered widespread criticism.


quote:

Why Edwards suddenly changed his stance on how to boost teacher pay is unclear.


quote:

Edwards successfully pushed a $1,000 teacher pay raise through the Legislature last year.

Many of the state's roughly 47,000 teachers believed that similar or bigger hikes would take place yearly, and with the governor's support.


quote:

Aides to the governor said at the time that local educators could use some of the money to boost teacher pay.

Teachers and others others then accused the governor of breaking his promise to educators.

$500 a year is a whole 25 cents an hour assuming a standard 40 hour work week.

For teachers though, who apparently work 96 hours or so per week, that's only 10 cents per hour. A slap in the face.

Teachers do not work 52 weeks a year let alone 96 hours per week.

Hopefully you are not a math teacher.

He promised $2000. It was a scam all along.

The idiots at LAE are claiming victory though. It’s fricking pathetic

$500 is stupid. That’s only a little more than $40/paycheck as teachers are usually paid monthly.

I taught HS for 6 years. I worked maybe 50 hrs/week. Coaches and extracurricular teachers worked a lot more but they got stipends for the extra work. Not huge stipends by any means, but they did get paid more.

Teachers are stupid. They do whatever the unions and the Democrats tell them to do. They are overpaid semi-professional parttime workers.

5% to 7% per sport is the typical stipend. In short, about $200 -$300 per month more give or take. That breaks down to about $5 per hour. There is a reason it is becoming harder to have coaches on staff that are faculty members. As for auxiliary groups, they got about half of what coaches got until very recently.

As for the raise, it will pay for a dinner with the missus once a month.

FWIW, I am not a member of the union and have never voted for a Democrat...ever.

Then please explain how a $500 raise equates to $0.25. I assumed it was based on 2080 hours/year. Let me know and I will STOP.

Afterwhich, maybe you can tell me how many teachers work 96 hours per week.

Will hang up and listen.

My wife is a teacher and coaches two teams. When those two seasons are going on she starts school at 7 and leaves school around 515. She also gets paid 6% of her salary for compensation towards coaching.

I guess what I’m trying to say is I hope my wife never reads your post.

I think the point you're missing is the dude was obviously being sarcastic when he said that teachers were working 96 hours a week (because they always incessantly bitch about how much they "actually" work)

You should feel pretty silly for this one man

So for part of the year she works a full time schedule?

I work 1800 hours a year if you count the days during summer for training and those days I have to come back to work after hours for school functions.

Now just talking the 185 days I'm at work I'm at 1670.

Now I do know teachers who work 7-7pm every day and since we are required to eat lunch with students they have no breaks. Now I would never be that teacher but you have several who are

The only votes he got that were cheaper were the ones from the Orleans Parish graveyards and the ones he got for a Popeyes 3 piece box.

I don’t see how you’d have a choice. You have to set aside time to grade student work and prepare lessons, None of that happens during the school day.

If you didn’t put in work outside of school hours, you wouldn’t be good at your job. Those people put in 7-7pm because it’s necessary.
