In Hawaii when the teacher retires they have mega bucks.

Considering most teachers work well more than 2000 hours per year doing socially, culturally, and economically crucial work, often thanklessly, I'd say they're generally underpaid.

Depends. Some deserve much more. Some deserve to be fired.

They do get the most time off though.

$70K-98k out here for LAUSD.

Not bad at all given they get every single government holiday off, 2 1/2 months off for summer. 10 sick days. Full pension and a 403 plan and virtually no co-pays for insurance.

Not saying they get underpaid or overpaid, but they don’t get nowhere near the narrative of poverty. And given LAUSD test scores have been one of the worse after NYC’s.

As long as we can fire you into the Sun first, then I will concede.

They raise our kids, our most precious resource, and yet they are not treated or paid like the professionals they are.

Cut administration staff wages in half and give that $ to the people in the trenches in what can be a dangerous place of employment. Raise firefighters and police as well. We depend on all these people in order to maintain a workable society.

There are still tons of people getting teaching degrees, so yes, the wages are high enough to attract people to the job.

Because people mostly choose to teach for how wealthy it'll make them...

Paid enough for the average, underpaid for the good ones.
