It adds up to annual wages


Re: A line in the sand, Nov. 1 letters.

In reality, teachers are paid an annual salary like many, if not most, other workers.


Re: A line in the sand, Nov. 1 letters.

Letter-writer Steve Morris continues to propagate the myth that teachers are only paid for 10 months work. In reality, teachers are paid an annual salary like many, if not most, other workers.

It doesn’t matter if its calculated into 10 months or 12 months, they receive their entire annual salary.

The math is so simple even an elementary student would get it: if the annual salary is $60,000, it can be either $5,000 per month for 12 months or $6,000 per month for 10 months.

For years, teachers have tried to pull the wool over our eyes with this 10-month thing – they’re not fooling anyone, and hopefully not themselves.
