    So that adds up to...what, 40 hours? ie a normal working week for everyone else.

    plus this week he is gone for 3 days on the school camp.
    3 days eh? how will you cope?


    Teachers earn every damn second of their holidays. What an insult. How dare you.
    Most people do, but they only get 4 lousy weeks a year. Do you think they work 3 times as hard as say, nurses?

    Are you kidding? :what:
    I thought you may come back and retract some of the comments in your OP but, it seems, you really are that rude.
    If teachers suck so much, home school!

    Don't have time to read all this because I'm a teacher and I have marking to do tonight. I just wanted everyone to know, we do not get paid for 12 weeks' holiday a year. We get paid in the holidays, but not for the holidays. I had it explained to me a few years ago when I got sick and had to take unpaid leave (during which time I continued to mark students' work and prepare lessons, as nobody else was going to do it) that our pay is based on 40 weeks' work per year. The annual salary is divided across 26 fortnights, though, so that we don't have periods of time with no pay. We get leave loading based on 4 weeks' annual leave, just like everyone else.

    It's children they signed up to "deal with" and they won't even do that.

    Hey, I'm not the one claiming they only work 1/3 as hard as teachers.

    How much parenting are you doing while you're posting passive aggressive comments on internet forums?

    I've just finished a 5 week full time prac working alongside and as a schoolteacher and I can honestly say I hated every minute of it!

    I think teachers are one of the most undervalued, unappreciated professionals out there.

    I had to do the prac for other studies but I can say with complete conviction (not that I didn't know before but I am now DAMN certain): I would NEVER, EVER be a schoolteacher, I'd rather do ANYTHING else!

    Oh please- one strike day to try and get funding for YOUR kid and all of a sudden they "don't even do that"? Talk about exaggeration!

    Also, I didn't see anyone say teachers worked harder than nurses? Which post was that?

    You're saying that to me? lol can't get over the irony of this post. I was simply responding to your passive aggressive comments.
