You must be a private bus driver who makes $9 per hr and I can understand your outrage. You probably did not finish HS and are stuck in a job that has no future. Teachers, for the most part, go to college for a minimum of 5 yrs., spending vast amounts of money, energy, and time to become certified. Could you teach physics, advanced placement classes? Please, tell me you are capable of this. You would be laughed out of the classroom. And what about those other degreed private professions you did not mention, such as doctors, attorneys, accountants, etc,? Would they work for teachers salarys? I think not. Maybe it's time to be a little more honest about why you are so upset about life.
