Teachers believe they are over worked and under paid. The tide is changing and the public that pays their salary is requiring they be more accountable. Many complain about the excessive number of hours they have to work. If you evaluate the number of hours they work per year I believe one will see they are in fact overpaid. They work less then 8 months a year. If they are really that unhappy whey don't they explore employment elsewhere? The reason is because they have a good thing and they know it.
