    The absolute most she could possibly make, according to the 2010-2011 salary schedule, and not be in administration, would be if she had 25 years experience and a Ph.D. @$75,400 + some more for summer school and proctoring tests, but I don't have the info for that.

    So that list looks pretty accurate, at least for Georgia.

    I would love to find out how she could make 160k though. Being a house husband might have its appeal .

    I'm betting those that make more than $100,000 have more than one job in the district.

    I'd like to say that teaching is a professions in teaching along with professions defense, cross country truck driving(highly under appreciated), medicine and others help this Country operate and they are doing Gods work wherever God may exist. This is why it is so shameful that teaching has become such a politicized union nightmare in my state of California. While there are many educators here on this forum of which I find myself in agreement with, the pay of teachers is the least of my worries when it comes to the degradation of our public school system and even schooling at a university level. One of my anarcho-capitalistic tendencies is that I hope we can eventually someday live in a society where public school is obsolete thanks to advent of home schooling, unschooling, information on demand and other social activities children may take part in where the side effect is a learning experience. I believe that such a society would not only make education better but would create more reward for teachers and more jobs in teaching(theoretical, albeit). Regardless, teacher pay is a red herring. (Please don't hate me)

    I have no problem with their salary range -- I have a problem with guaranteed union increases, health care for life, and protection's no one in the private sector gets. They should be like everyone else... if we cut their golden parachute of a healthcare for life and their pensions that bankrupt states like NJ (my state), I would support raising their pay.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I don't give a tinker's dam if you believe that website or not, LibLady. There are those who know, and those who think they know. You, on this particular subject, fall into the second category.

    well, maggie, it seems you have no proof of your position. i posted facts, while you posted a skewed statement with no proof.

    There's no reason that teacher salaries should be so high and requirements so high as well. I could probably teach all of kindergarten to 8th grade, and probably a lot of classes in high school.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

    You didn't even read my posts, did you, LibLady? Can't say as I blame you since there are so many on this topic. You don't even know WHAT you posted. I posted the facks, Jack.

    People just can't believe what teachers make in Illinois. They can't believe that 30 years teaching earns them 90% of salary....full healthcare benefits 'til age 65 and Medicare...and even THEN a free supplement. They can't believe teachers are getting bought out with $$ incentives to retire. It's a well-guarded secret for very good reason.
