    100k and 4 months a year off is pretty good though. Wouldn't mind that myself.
    Many also take classes that they pay for out of their own pocket to MAINTAIn certification...

    Agreed, but a lot of those are funded here in the US through tuition assistance. Sometimes they're even free with the states university system

    True, however when it comes to making an apples to apples comparison of teachers salaries vs. most of us that work year round either annualizing their salary or de-annualizing mine is necessary.

    No I did not. I took the total compensation paid out in salaries by the state and divided by the total teachers in the state. Annualizing the salary is still necessary when making an apples to apples comparison.

    Easily enough there is a rather weak example of it in a thread here on dp. But, to be fair I don't think it's widespread....yet.

    I was utilizing a 55K base-pay, which is perhaps the reason for the difference.


    but perhaps i could turn the question on you: can states and localities, as they face brutal deficits, afford to continue to spend more than 100,000 on each teacher, a price whose tag is sure to spike as retirements increase in the near future? or should they begin to shift to defined-contribution benefits packages for retirement (as the private sector has done) and HSA's (as Indiana has very successfully done)?

    Fistgate

    In 2000, the Massachusetts Department of Education, the Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth, and the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network sponsored a statewide conference called "Teach-Out." Included among the conference-goers were high school students and preadolescents, some as young as twelve...

    Scott Wiseman, a parent present at the meeting, made a recording, and asked Middlesex County District Attorney Martha Coakley to investigate the explanation of sexual activities to minors by state employees. He and members of the above groups alleged that conference attendees discussed how sexual education teachers could circumvent their administration and include information about homosexuality in the curriculum. The incident gained wider attention when Jeanine Graf, a talk-show host on station WTKK, broadcast the tapes on her talk-show.....



    basically along with general promotion, the event picked up the tag "fistgate" due to a particular controversial explination/demonstration by some of the (yes, public) employees.

    and so on and so forth. plenty of "johnny has two daddies" book selections in elementary schools these days.
