**Tired of Those 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 9 or 10 months a year!

Its time we put things in perspective and pay them for what they do, baby sit! We can get that for less than minimum wage. That's right?

I would give them $3.00 an hour and only the hours they worked, not any silly planning time. That would be $15.00 a day. Each parent should pay $15.00 a day for these teachers to baby-sit their children. Now, how many do they teach in a day?.... maybe 25. Then that's 15 x 25 =

$375.00 a day.

But remember they only work 180 days a year! I'm not going to pay them for any vacations. Let's see? That's 375 x 180 $67,500.00. (Hold on, my calculator must need batteries!)

What about those special teachers or the ones with Masters Degrees?

Well, we could pay them minimum wage just to be that fair. Let's round it off to $6.00 an hour. That would be $6.00 times five hours times 25 children times 180 days = $135,000.00 per year. Wait a minutes, there is something wrong here!!!!

There sure is, huh ??????!!!!

Send this to any teachers YOU may know. I'm sure they'd gladly accept baby-sitting rates!
