    Given how many teachers out west end up banging students I guess there's always the fringe benefits of teaching....

    "A deepening budget crisis here has forced schools across the Sooner State to make painful decisions.

    But funding for classrooms has been shrinking for years in this deep-red state as lawmakers have cut taxes, slicing away hundreds of millions of dollars in annual revenue in what some Oklahomans consider a cautionary tale about the real-life consequences of the small-government approach favored by Republican majorities in Washington and statehouses nationwide.

    Democrats helped pass bipartisan income tax cuts from 2004 to 2008. Republicans — who have controlled the legislature since 2009 and governorship since 2011 — have cut income taxes further and also significantly lowered taxes on oil and gas production."

    I hope you are either a machine pumping out an algorithm based answer or else are being sarcastic.

    most of the public sectors employees I know haven't got a raise in 5+ years either, one of the negatives of working in that sector

    security and benefits are generally phenomenal tho

    Teaching seems like such an awful profession. You go to college for 4 years, rack up studwnt debt, just to make shit money, have to spend all day on your feet, dealing with dickhead kids.

    Pretty much nailed it here. Education must be funded more. But the right has been putting a strangle-hold on public education for what feels like my entire life. Don't get me started on school vouchers......Privatize!!!!!!!!!!

    I've seen articles in the past about reforming schools, using computer internet schooling for kids. Fewer teachers would be needed if that idea was used. I'm sure it wouldn't be popular with teacher understandably, but if the state has troubling paying it might be a way to teach kids.

    So what about the parents who can’t afford private education? Education quality is one thing that shouldn’t be compromised because of wealth. Otherwise you have a bunch of future drains and criminals.

    My wife is a teacher, she started at like 55,000$, and by the time she retires will end up making over 100,000$. We live in Massachusetts, and she teaches in a wealthy suburb. Massachusetts students are extremely highly ranked worldwide.

    Let's not go completely nuts here... I know an elementary school music teacher in Western New York who came out of college making 60K a year. And that's for 9 months work. Not exactly chopped liver. And she loves her job.

    Wasn't this the norm?

    When I was a kid, my 5th and 6th grade teachers owned a housing painting business during the summers.

    As I got older, many of my teachers worked as exam raters outside of their teaching duties.

    When I first started as a teacher, I made significantly less money as that.

    However, it was at a boarding school. So, all of my expenses were covered:

    - Housing
    - Meals
    - I used the gym on campus.
    - I only went shopping, to the movies, etc. when I was on weekend duty.

    Then, during my holidays, I traveled.

    I was able to pay off my college loans pretty early too.

    I highly suggest those right out of college who want to teach start looking at working at a boarding school.
