None of that is in there is it? The average would be sooo much higher. And if it does include overtime; then I'm right again aren't I.
Sorry dude: you're only seeing what you want to see. You're doing all you can to back the board and make social enemies out of these teachers.
You can dance without a lawyer
Don't let Obama find out it's money to be made from this Teacher's union strike. He'll get on TV and say
"YOU DIDN'T SAVE ALL THAT MONEY!!!...WE DID !!"""
The salary is $76k.

These teachers are demand pay raises in the midst of a major budget crisis. They are already making well above the median salary for their city. I hope they aren't given a single dime more. I can understand why they are upset about the standardized test scores being used to evaluate teachers, though. Teachers NEED to be evaluated, but test scores aren't the way to do that.
However you seem to be way too weak to admit your mistake. It is just embarrassing to see how you pretend your sources did not go against you, and how you did not run away and then you come back pretending I didn't even write it.
Out of pocket materials for the class is minicule and not more than what it would costs for out of pocket exenses for many other jobs. And this has nothing to do with making enemies out of the teachers. This is about facts which you refuse to admit.

Let's see, my out of pocket for working in a restaurant....
I have to buy about 2-3 new pairs of shoes per year, as working in a kitchen is very hard on shoes. All kinds of abrasive cleaners, and grease, and god knows what other juices, etc. They just wear out, or the soles wear through. At about 50-70 bucks a pop for a decent pair, let's call that 155 per year.
Pants, pants pants. I go through pants like crazy. As a manager, I can't just roll in with jeans, either. They have to be black slacks. I can typically get them when Sears has sales, at around 25 bucks a pair. I buy at LEAST 4 pairs per year, so we'll call that 100 bucks per year.
Shirts. Typically, these are provided by the company, and typically, they cost about 10 bucks, and typically, they just take it out of your paycheck, so at least it's tax free, but then, EVERYTHING a teacher buys for the classroom is tax free, ain't it? However, where I work, I have to wear button down dress shirts, no uniform. And I tend to find them in the 20 dollar range...I like Van Heuson. I don't actually go through too many of these, so, honestly, we'll say that's just 40 buck per year.
Now, just in clothing, I am at 295 bucks per year. And this is for a job that does not require TOOLS. And NONE of my supplies are easily tax deductible. I don't get to wave a teacher card, or whatever, and have my 6% knocked off.
The Godfather is now trying to sue the teachers union to make them stop striking. See how supportive liberals are when it affects them. That's Chicago values.
