And something funny someone sent me to copy and forward to your fellowdown trodden colleagues in K-12:


I, for one, am sick and tired of those high paid teachers.

Their hefty salaries are driving up taxes, And they only work nine or ten

months a year!

It's time we put things in perspective and pay them for what they do,


We can get that for less than minimum wage.

That's right.

I would give them $3.00 dollars an hour and only the hours they worked,

not any of that silly planning time.

That would be 15 dollars a day.

Each parent should pay 15 dollars a day for these teachers to baby-sit

their children.

Now, how many do they teach in a day. . . . maybe 25.

Then that's 15 x 25=$375 a day.

But remember they only work 180 days a year!

I'm not going to pay them for any vacations.

Let's see ... that's $375 x 180=$67,500.00

(Hold on, my calculator must need batteries!)

What about those special teachers or the ones with masters degrees?

Well, we could pay them minimum wage just to be fair.

Let's round it off to $6.00 an hour.

That would be $6 times 5 hours times 25 children times 180 days =

$135,000.00 per year.

Wait a minute, there is something wrong here!!!

There sure is, huh????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
