    About 40% of those people who major in education, get a teaching job and start teaching wash out before the 5th year. I have taught and I have worked in an office. The major difference is that when you are working in an office you do not have to be paying 100% attention 100% of the time. And, when you leave work, you leave work. Each class requires about 20 minutes of prep time if you are revising lessons you have done before. If it’s a new lesson, an hour or two is more likely.After getting a total of 6 1/2 years of college and working for 32 years, I was making about 75% of what my nephew was two years into a sales job.All of the ideas for improving education add about 20% to the classroom hours, and no additional money seems to be available to get extra people to help with the job. Paying the people who are doing it more might make them happy, but it’s not going to increase the quality, because it would be an overwhelming amount of work. Eventually, they are going to get to the point where no one with the intelligence to do the job is going to be dumb enough to take it.

    In other words, teachers don’t deserve a living wage. They don’t deserve to live in a nice house, drive a car or do anything any other citizen of this country might expect from having a job with the level of responsibility a teacher has to bear. Typical GQP level bitchy whine about teachers.

    Well, yeah. Fail to pay teachers adequately and you won’t have enough teachers to teach the kids, and the kids will get diddly. Don’t invest in education, and education doesn’t happen.

    Which, quite honestly, is already happening. Class sizes are insanely large, which is directly reflective of the staffing problem.

    Kill unions! Get the boot on the neck of labor, and hold it there permanently! Employee’s have no business participating in the decision-making process. Employee’s are commodities necessary for ownership profit only!

    I don’t know about every school in this country but in many places the practices to keep the spread of the disease aren’t physically doable. My guess is that Summers just doesn’t care all that much. Thus he spreads this drivel about the teachers holding up the districts for more money.
