It's funny because it seems that you think that the people who pay for advertising are also the people who pay our teachers

Maybe next time the artists should just write a big ******* label that reads: !!SOCIETY!!!! over top the character so people like you can understand.

Minimum wage in the U.S. averages about 7.75$/hr.  With a standard 40 hr work weak working 52 weaks a year that turns out to be 16,120$/yr for minimum wage.  Only missouri and idaho have starting average anual salaries less than 30,000 yr.  And the actual average salary of teachers in the the U.S. is inbetween 50 and 55 thousand a year.  Keep in mind these people also have health and dental taken care of by the government so theres several thousands in savings that they get a year as well.   Not to mension having most of the summer off every year and basically the best job security in the nation once you actually get a teaching job.  Teachers have it pretty good in the U.S. asshole.

Not sure of in the States, but here in Canada more entry level teaching positions are substitute positions (if they even get a job after school, the markets kind of flooded)

Teachers have actually had benefits slashed significantly in recent years. Especially in Michigan. Pay has also been lowered to around 45,000.

I know a man who teaches juvenile delinquents, and because of their varying levels of education and how often staff members leave he has to come up with new lesson plans every year, often for different subjects. He spends upwards of 14 hours a day working at the school, grading papers, and writing lesson plans. This means that he works about 70 hours a week.

Teacher job security is also total **** . To get any job security you need tenure. All that guarantees is that they need an actual reason to fire you. For the first 5 years or so of their career, they may be let go without reason, and often are. Then they have to start all over somewhere else.

...minus taxes?
#40 to #15 - boredomavenger (05/22/2013) [-]
due to massive budget cuts, my school district just fired 6 teachers and set 5 more on part-time teaching hours (which negates all benefits such as health or dental) and that's just at the high school.

so if you're arguing that teachers have the best job security, my experiences make me believe otherwise.

well you live in a rundown ****** part of your state, and probably most of the people in your county are tax dodgers... so yea I dont have any sympathy for teachers that are actually good at their jobs. my step-mother makes 150k a year for being a computer teacher. Talk about the most useless class in this day and age, and she still gets paid a small fortune, plus no work during summer. My father works 350 days a year and only makes 100k compared to her. and I work harder than all of them and make 38k a year. and THIS is why america is dying

I live in canada and the teacher here also get payed really well and have good benefits too... the thing is a lot of teachers are those "here's a booklet, read it and answer these questions" and it pisses me off so much
#48 to #26 - anon (05/22/2013) [-]
I've actually talked to the teacher about what their job market is like. It's horrible. They don't hire enough teachers and they're left fighting over positions just to be a substitute. The pay is far less than you'd think. The reality is cost of living is disproportionate to our perceived value of money. Realistically, our minimum wage would have to be about 20 dollars an hour to compensate for inflation and cost of living increases just over the past three decades.

There are way too many people trying to be teachers, the amount of jobs needed is way less than the amount of people trying to get jobs

User avatar #4 - deadlove **User deleted account** (05/22/2013) [-]
this is partly due to who pays for each. public funds pay for teachers and private companies (sometimes multi-national companies) and the government can't decide on which is more important atm... so that does't help.

NO! REALLY!?!?!
User avatar #89 to #62 - brettd (05/23/2013) [-]
Free health care. Free insurance. Summer's off. Weekends off. Holiday breaks. Higher salary the longer you work. What part of this job is underpaid, overworked, or stressful in any way?
#108 to #89 - angelusprimus ONLINE (05/23/2013) [-]
You need to listen to a little less propaganda.
Healthcare and insurance are not free, they are calculated in your full salary. No different then working for a bank. Except you are doing more valuable work.
Summers are not fully off. You get a month off, by law you there is time you have to spend on paperwork, preparation and professional education.
Higher salary longer you work is STANDARD. That's not exactly something special for teachers.
Underpaid, well its simple, it is inadequate compensation for amount of work that goes into educating themselves for the job, amount of work they do and value of their work for the society.
And high stress and bad working conditions. In five year period: One in three parents will call and yell at a teacher if not satisfied with how child is doing. Not try to get child to work more, call and yell at teacher. One in eight teachers will be threatened. One in a dozen physically attacked.
If they teach to the standardized test, they know they are not doing their job, because students are getting bad education. If they do not students do worse on exams and school gets less money and they do not get bonuses.
They have extremely limited ways to deal with students that just don't want to do any work. Yet if grade curve goes down they are responsible and lose bonuses or even funding for the school.
But yeah. Easy job.
You don't have any idea how hard work is in education. You believe propaganda of politicians who make three times what teachers do, and their corporate sponsors because actually doing research, that takes WORK.

>My mother has been a teacher for seven years.
>Yes, they are virtually free, thanks to public unions. Look up the whole incident in Wisconsin with Scott Walker. He passed a law that made them pay for their healthcare and insurance the same as everybody else. They tried to impeach him.
>implying every job does not involve educating oneself
>teachers only work till 3:00, therefore they have a shorter workday than almost all of America
>One in twelve will be ATTACKED? Please tell me where you are getting this information

Most teachers suck anyway. And I don't know what you're talking about, because teaching is a great job with lots of benefits.
User avatar #85 - eatingmachine (05/23/2013) [-]
Teachers aren't hired to meet any sort of "bottom line". The education system does not run for profits. To pay teachers more, the government requires a larger budget which has to come from somewhere, this 'somewhere' is typically your pockets.

The advertisement industry, however, makes bank and sells **** with the intention of making oodles of money. So paying some model to advertise soda in the hopes it will increase sales is business.

Don't make this a question of who deserves more money. That's a question everyone knows the answer to.

Do you know how ******* hard athletes work? Even the ones that are considered "lazy" work pretty damn hard. They dedicate their entire lives to maintaining teriffic physical fitness and a great diet. They also often have to sacrifice a decent education and job security for if their professional career doesn't work out. Even models work out all the time and restrict their diets MAJORLY. If you wanna complain about people like the Jersey Shore idiots then go ahead, but don't knock the people who actually have to work really hard. Funny enough, Mike "The Situation" is from my town and I know for a fact that both of his parents are teachers.

Regular minor league baseball players make under $50,000 a year usually. Young decent players make a few hundred thousand. Bad players in bball and football make a few hundred thousand and have a very good chance to not make it and be out of work without job experience and often without a college degree after a few years.

It's called capitalism. If people didn't watch sports or cared about them, there wouldn't be a high demand for talented players and they wouldn't have such expensive contracts.

This is kind of a weird way to think about it but the girl was born with tits and ass and then she worked on her appearance every day (eg. working out, picking clothes, applying makeup, doing her hair (and some of this is done by pro's (salons etc.) and through that she has become super attractive (Keep in mind more so than a **** ton of other girls with the same or similar assets) and in a sense eaned the job (because lets face it you or I couldn't just walk in and get that job. I think the teacher should be paid more but it's not like the girl never did anything (even if it wasn't intellectual)

Give teachers a flat salary of 30k them give them bonuses for churning out good grades, you can't honestly say that some asshole with a 60% fail rate deserves more or even the same as someone with 90% passing.
#73 to #51 - themole (05/23/2013) [-]
The teacher controls what grades the students get. Who's to say that that teacher doesn't just tell the students the answers to whatever questions they're to be asked? At that, there are many students who either have IEP's or similar disabilities who have difficulties learning certain subjects. There are also many students who just do not have the drive to try to accomplish more than what they feel is satisfactory. Implementing that sort of initiative would require implementing another form of initiative to get the students to try their best as well. As an elementary teacher, I think this is the most illogical idea I've ever heard of.
#84 to #51 - anon (05/23/2013) [-]
I agree that teachers should be required to perform a certain way and that results are a useful tool to gauge performance, but they are not the ONLY tool. You're also operating under the assumption that every student works hard to earn their grades. Ideally, a teacher should be able to educate all of his or her students to the level that the state requires - that's his or her job. But practically, not every student cares enough to put forth the effort. Should teachers be penalized for the students who just show up to school without books, their homework, or half a damn?

And what about AP teachers? Granted, plenty of them use curves and multipliers to inflate grades so as to salvage a hard-working student's GPA, but there are others that do not. True AP-style tests are designed for students to miss questions; realistically, there's never supposed to be a perfect score, either because the questions are really hard or there are just plain bad questions.

tl;dr = that's a bad idea.

they are better because you specialize faster (from what i've heard) in k-12 in america everyone takes the same classes, but canada you can start specializing way faster (skipping the unnecessary classes). paying someone more money won't make them do their job better imo..

It's because we're too greedy. Fewer and fewer people are willing to do things that are honorable, or do things for others, because we all just feel entitles to whatever we want. I'm part of the problem, you're part of the problem, we all are part of this big problem. Be careful in life, work hard, and do everything you can to make productive, selfless kids and perhaps we can solve this over a generation or two.

Teachers turn over no profit, and are actually a loss (in the short run). A model for advertising is guessed to pull in a large profit. A company with more money and higher profits etc, will be able to pay their workforce higher. What you do means **** all, it's who you work for. How do people not understand. I.e. "Pay soldiers more, footballers get payed too much", do they not understand that they cannot afford to pay soldiers £100,000's, but the football industry is worth enough pay footballers loads, if you don't like it, work somewhere else?
