I did a basic calculation on why teachers are underpaid. So people claim teachers are no better than 15 year old babysitters. Fine, then pay them as such. That is $3.50 per kid per hour. Ok, there are at least 15 kids in a classroom (to be honest it is closer to 25). A teacher works 6 hours a day (to make the calculation easier I made lunch an hour and one hour conference period. This is not counting mandatory tutorials, lesson plans etc). Ok and there are 287 days in a given school calendar. 3.50 * 15 * 6 * 287 = 90,405. Average teacher salary: about $40,500. We are seriously underpaying these so called babysitters.
A friend of mine is an accountant getting her Masters.  We were discussing politics and things like that.  I’m not her only friend trying to find work as a teacher, and her own mother is one, so she knows the stories, and she decided to do a little math…
