2) Teachers Are Paid Too Much

I’m fed up with teachers and their hefty salary guides. What we need here is a little perspective. If I had my way, I’d pay these teachers myself…I’d pay them babysitting wages.

That’s right…instead of paying these outrageous taxes, I’d give them $3.00 an hour out of my own pocket. And, I’m only going to pay them for five hours, not coffee breaks. That would be $15.00 a day. Each parent should pay $15.00 a day for these teachers to babysit their children.

Even if they have more than one child, it’s still cheaper than private daycare.

Now how many children do they teach a day – maybe twenty? That’s $15.00 X 20 = $300.00 a day.

But remember, they only work 180 days a year! I’m not going to pay them for all those vacations.

$300 X 180 = $54,000. (Just a minute, that can’t be right…)

I know you teachers will say what about those who have ten years of experience and a master’s degree? Well, maybe (just to be fair) they could get the minimum wage, and instead of just babysitting, they could read the kids a story. We can round that off to about $5.00 an hour, times five hours, times twenty children. $5.00 X 5 X 20.

That’s $500 a day times 180 days. That’s $90,000.

HUH???? Wait a minute, maybe babysitting wages are too good for teachers…
