Before I get into my rant, I have a lot of people in my life that teach…a lot.  They are all good people and they seem to be really good at what they do, but there are some things about this noble profession that just plain anger me!

Why Teachers Piss me Off

I think a lot of it has to do with their lack of understanding when it comes to the real economy.

Tenure

Who else can’t get fired in America?

Guaranteed Raises

Economy sucks? Who cares….I am a teacher and am guaranteed a raise?

Pensions

How many of my readers have a State backed defined benefit pension?

The Hours

They count down June like it is the second coming of Christ.   Well you know who doesn’t get off all summer? Me, and everyone else with a normal job.

Perceived Stress

You can’t get fired, you are off for 1/3 the year, and some of you are ‘teaching’ 5 and 6 year olds, and yet you are stressed?!

End Rant.
