The average teacher:

Work day is 7 hours including a 1/2 hour PAID lunch and one hour FREE period/day




I think you are double-counting here. In every jurisdiction of which I'm aware, teachers have instructional days (180 in your example; in my province it's closer to 200) and a certain number of "operational days" in which teachers are in school but students are not, plus 2-5 professional development days in which teachers take training of some sort. These are working days, and do not include holidays or vacation days. (e.g. you don't subtract Christmas because it wasn't counted as an instructional day in the first place.) I've also never heard of public school teachers being entitled to vacation time. At least here the contract is for instructional days, non-instructional days and professional development days.

That said, teachers do have more time off than most other workers. It's just not so much as the original double-count claims.
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

sometimes you have no choice.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Good video, tommy. And yes, it does apply to some of the offers that are made to teachers nowadays.

Well no Bob. There is only book that you need to read to understand how the world really works, which is the Godfather.

Teachers ought to teach them that.
