Are you sick of high paid teachers?

I, for one, am sick and tired of those high paid teachers. Their hefty salaries are driving up taxes, and they only work nine or tenmonths a year!
It's time we put things in perspective and pay them for what! We can get that for less than minimum wage.
That's right. I would give them $3.00 dollars an hour and only the hours they worked, not any of that silly planning time.
That would be $19.50 a day (7:45AM to 4:00 PM with 45 min. off for lunch). Each parent should pay$19.50 a day for these teachers to baby-sit their children.
Now, how many do they teach in a day... maybe 30?So that's 19.5 X 30 = $585.00 a day. But remember they only work180 days a year! I'm not going to pay them for any vacations.
Let's see. . . that's $585 x 180 = $105,300
Hold on! My calculator must need batteries!
What about those special teachers or the ones with master's degrees?
Well, we could pay them minimum wage just to be fair. Round it offto $7.00 an hour.
That would be $7 times 6-1/2 hours times 30 children times 180 days=$245,700.00 per year.
Wait a minute, there is something wrong here!
There sure is, duh!
Make a teacher smile, send this to him or her!
