Amen to ohreally! Both of my parents are teachers, and BOTH of them are being hit VERY hard. My parents currently haven't got retirement funds- their salary is so paltry that it barely covers their nessecities. Some people seem to forget that teachers are human beings who usually have families to take care of as well. It doesn't matter how much they are in it for "the love of educating children" when their own can't eat.
And honestly, dpaul, think twice about riding hard on the teachers. These men and woment who play such a role in our childhoods and in shaping our society demand no shortage of respect from the rest of us. I can only hope to achive in my lifetime what my parents achive in a school year.
