Does Jim McMahon or Gregg Slapak ever make a sensible comment?

Actually it's like 20% or more, and they won't get Social Security when they retire. The teachers made a contract for which they have been keeping their part by contributing 20% or more of their compensation into the pesnions system - under the contracts the state agreed to match employee contributions but they have not kept up their end of the contract.

This is total compensation - they do not take home near that amount, 20% or more of this goes into the pension fund, the state is supposed to match employee contributions but they have underfunded it for decades.

If ignorance is bliss, billy is in hog heaven! In order to become a librarian, one needs a master's degree at least. Librarians must know several library classification systems, as well as research techniques, and current computer skills on a variety of platforms. They also need to be familiar with the various genres in literature & be familiar with a wide variety of authors & literary works. All in all, librarians need to be skilled in many fields with which billy here is obviously unfamiliar.

I've been in the private sector for over 21 years. From my observations, a person in the private sector that has advanced degrees and over 20 years of experience usually makes well over $100K/yr & doesn't have to deal with kids who are unruly, or who have been abused (I know some teachers who could tell you some horror stories that would curl your hair on that score), or have other mental, emotional and/or physical issues. Just being allowed in a classroom a teacher needs a 4 yr. degree as well as completing a certification process - and they're usually required to continue their education (at their own expense) during the course of their career.
