Re: Teachers, $?
I love this thread because in CA we are being turned into the villains that are bringing the state to bankruptcy. I can't tell the number of times I have heard the media talk about how CA teachers are the highest paid in the nation although we rank only 47th in education. Some of their facts come from the fact that we have old faculty that make more. I am the youngest teacher in my department at 38 with 13yrs experience. When you factor in the cost of living between CA and central Ill., I don't think we are paid too much (starting in the mid 40's).
