    @ Harry -- I agree with you. And, from the posts on this website, most people are not aware of teacher salaries. Again, I'll say, teachers are sacred cows....and it's because people are uninformed and/or misinformed intentionally.

    Bull****. The information you are presenting is not accurate, as I showed. Teachers do NOT make a "very good living". They do OK, for the most part.

    Now, I hear you all talking about bad teachers, and there are certainly quite a few of them. I disagree with tenure, and think that merit... as in most jobs, should be cause for advancement and retainment. However, those of you who think that the good teachers do not work hard, have no clue what you are talking about. And advancement and retainment should NOT be based on student abilities, at least not solely. This is not something that teachers have complete control over.

    How is it possible for a High School teacher with 12 years experience to be making over $600,000??

    No, it's not. The website you took this from has an agenda. My information comes from the official Illinois Department of Education website. That trumps anything you presented.

    @ Harry -- I agree with you. And, from the posts on this website, most people are not aware of teacher salaries. Again, I'll say, teachers are sacred cows....and it's because people are uninformed and/or misinformed intentionally.
    And you are presenting misinformation. Look at the website I posted and find the $170,000+ salaries. You can't because they don't exist.

    It isn't. The website is posting misinformation. Check the link I posted for the REAL information.

    Then you do not fall in the "most" category.

    Something tells me the $600,000 is a typo.

    I have friends that teach in IL and they say the site is accurate as far as their information.

    Seems to me, to be sort of a conditioned response.
    I think before teachers (and other state workers) weren't paid all that greatly, after unionization though, that has flipped.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I don't think so. Look at the top 200 listed salaries. The LOWEST is $199,000+. 10 people make over $300,000. The Illinois Department of Education lists their top salary at $127,000. The website Maggie posted is messing with the numbers, somehow.
