Teachers in my county average 72k/year and they're supposed to be getting two sequential 5% raises over the next two years. I don't understand.

Because they do such a great job with our kids! /sarcasm

Are all teachers terrible? Seems like a pretty fiercely hated group around here.

I mean, I was a teacher (if not K-12). I just don't understand how the job deserves 80k a year. I'd have felt like I was stealing getting paid 80k.

I've heard nightmare stories of my friends being propositioned/sexually harassed by students in the rougher neighbourhoods.

A few years back one of the schools in my own neighbourhood had the honour of hosting their own Lebanese vs Chinese gang war, with knifes and knuckle dusters.

I don't exactly live in a rough area, and the rough areas around here pay a whole lot less.

I still wouldn't teach for 80k. Teaching is a profession everyone hates. There is just no winning in that one, everything will always be your fault no matter what. Not to mention I hate children.

80k for 90 days off and a set in stone schedule? yes please.

Actually, I'd be cool with just a 50k job.

I taught ninth grade English for a semester. It was hell.

Still not worth it. I mean, sure, I'd be down with teaching at a university, but think I'm smart enough for that? Hah.

Yeah, that's truly the irony of how the US funds public education - since it's generally tied to local property taxes, schools in affluent areas have great facilities, music, arts and sports programs, well paid teachers, and involved (often overly so) parents. Rough neighborhoods have falling down schools, underpaid and inexperienced teachers, and parents who don't care about education. A great system to break the cycle of poverty, not.
