[SH]Yes, The Khan Academy IS the Future of Education (video) - Page 5

post #41 of 44
I work at a school as an IT admin and I have to say that teachers are in NO WAY underpaid.

My boss is probably the busiest person in the school, she does do quite a bit of work, but she is definitely not overworked. I believe the minimum wage (at my work place at least) is roughly 60-70k with the higher staff getting 6 figures. So I fail to see how they are overworked and underpaid.

Then to top it off they get 12 weeks holiday a year.

Please tell me how that is a raw deal. Please.

I will admit that is probably a higher wage than average for Australian teachers, but the point is every teacher here still complains about their wage and time etc.

Sorry but I have a tough time seeing how teachers are getting a raw deal.

I agree, my father was a teacher at a high school for a couple of months (He didnt have to go to college as he was an Instructor in the Navy for a couple of years) and he said the pay was pretty good, but he could handle some of the dumb-asses there.

I think American teachers end up being underpaid, and subjected to endless politics, at least in many areas and districts, where they might be putting their life on the line on a daily basis - in the hoods where the schools have metal detectors, security guards, and have lock down times.

My High School had a Metal Detector, it freaking sucked as they would go through our pockets and the damn teacher confiscated my House and Car Keys because I wasnt thinking and forgot to take my Swiss Army kit thing (It didnt even have a knife on it) off of it. I got them back because i made sure i raised hell about it but still.
