Teachers Don’t Get Paid Enough To Take This Crap

markpotts by markpotts on May. 07, 2013

It’s safe to say your teachers, tasked with teaching the fundamental skills and knowledge you’ll need to make it as an educated adult, are among the biggest influencers you’ll have in life. But they have to put up with a lot of crap.

First, schools are often underfunded so teachers don't have the tools they need. Second, they aren't paid very well. On average, a teacher's salary starts at just over $30,000. They are asked to teach children, hone their skills, and protect them but aren't really paid a salary that matches those tasks. Add on top of that the fact that the union leaders for teachers are all paid well over six figures a year, a number they definitely do not deserve. (You know what country is number one in average pay for a teacher working for 15 years? Luxembourg. I don’t know where that is because I wasn’t paying attention in my overstuffed geography class, but I’m pretty sure it isn’t in America, and that’s a shame).

Finally, they have to put up with a lot of crappy students. Students who don't care, who would rather be on their phone, or do anything other than what they are supposed to do: learn. Here are five teachers who put up with more crap than they deserve.

 

Answering your cellphone in class is one of the dumber things you can do, yet this guy does it, sitting in the front row no less. We think this teacher’s actions are very justified and we salute her.

If this happened in a U.S. school, the teacher, unfortunately, would get into trouble.

Teachers only work 9 months of the year so that 30k is more like 45k ishy which is not a bad starting salary.

What BS, the average teacher starts out at 30K a year? Not that I have seen, most start at 40k and up. More money is spent on education in the US than at any time in US history. I am tire dof hearing they need more monety in order to teach. It is a poor excuse...

Don't get paid enough? If you look at the actual job they are doing getting young people prepared for the real world then they are way overpaid.

The public education system, (especially the American one) is a joke anyways. They're more focused on indoctrination then education.

Teachers don't work 40 hour work weeks by any means. If your teachers made it look easy, it's because of the massive amounts of time they spent outside of class, organizing and planning. I know managers who work in fast food who make over 30k/yearly, and none of them have their Master's.

Not to mention they get a 3 month break every fuggin year. Plus 2 weeks for Christmas, plus spring break. And they pretty much just do whatever their little book tells them. Probably one of the most overpaid professions there are.

Agreed, but I wasn't just talking about our system. World wide we rank in the high teens to high twenties in about all subjects, and have some of the highest paid teachers and some of the richest schools.

I agree out teachers are overpaid for what they do/produce. Our school system is a joke. You can thank the teachers union for that.
