Re: In defence of teachers

Hear hear. I guess you got downvoted by one of those people who are convinced that teachers only work while in class. Which makes just about as much sense as believing that farmers only work at harvest.

At the school where my SO teaches, 50+ hours work weeks are fairly regular and the current week looks like it could break 60. Yet there is no overtime pay at all, and a large part of that work is actually unpaid. If she could somehow trade the extra holidays (which, btw, aren't three months, not even close) for an enforced timetable, she'd do it in a heartbeat.
