SHAWNEE MISSION TEACHERS DEMAND MORE MONEY AMID EPIC ADMIN CASH!!!

Here's a worthwhile look at an ongoing debate and a money fight wherein educators are tragically scapegoated and administrator salaries are overlooked.

Check the suburbanite collective bargaining update:

Why Shawnee Mission Teachers - Already The Best Paid In Kansas - Are Asking For More Money

Negotiators for the Shawnee Mission School District and the teachers union are at an impasse and will now present their cases to a neutral party. On one side are teachers who feel overworked and underpaid. On the other side are school administrators who say the union's demands will ultimately put the district in the red.

Teachers deserve better, they have to put up with all these liberal dumbass admin and parents, it’s not about teaching anymore as it is about gay and transgender rights, politics, babysitting and horrible parents. They're lucky there are still teachers willing to put up with this bullshit.

Teachers union lobbies to give illegal immigrants access to schools and to bring more illegal immigrants in. The immigrants then use up resources without paying into the system. crowding classrooms taking time resources to get them up to speed on the language barrier brings in lice and other third world diseases.
HEY TEACHERS THAT MONEY BEING SPENT BY STATES ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION COULD BE GOING TO INCREASE YOU SALARY!

If you prorate teachers out to working a full twelve months they'd make around $75-80k a year. No one ever talks about this. Catholic and private schools do more with less and most public school teachers couldn't stay employed in an environment where they didn't have a union

If we could stop spending millions on upgrading classrooms and having state of the art facilities, then teachers could make a decent wage.

I predict a critical teacher shortage in about 15 years. No one wants to put up with the BS any more.

^^^^ there’s a shortage now

Teacher shortage? Never. Look at the people in that picture. wtf else are they going to do to make 50K+ a year with benefits, that only takes 4 years of college, and you don't really have to be that intelligent to do?

Actually not being sarcastic...

Tells is like it is said...

Fuck 'em. If academia is too tough, Quit!!! See if these liberals can find a job in the real world.

Always amuses me that these folks watched someone directly in front of them do what they now do, for 16 years, even doing some intern teaching, then find out it's too hard and unrewarding (financially). I'd say that means they're not very bright.

Being the best paid teachers in Kansas is like being the smartest person at a MAGA rally.

A truly low bar and nothing to gloat about.

Wow, lots of bitter TKC commentators checking in. They must have built it up spending most of their youth on the short bus.

How bad must their lives be when they are so jealous and angry towards underpaid teachers?

If you think it's such a cushy job, jump in and do it yourself. Most of you wouldn't last a week.

How come no one seems to understand that these overpaid cry babies in SMSD caused their own problems. They and their union supported the lawsuit against the State of Kansas for years which has milked millions of dollars out of education and into the hands of lawyers. They "spread the money" to small districts that should have consolidated years ago instead they supported an excess of superintendents in these districts, some with less than a couple thousand students total. There are almost 300 districts in Kansas in 105 counties when the number should be less than 150. They don't understand how you can only spend a dollar once and if you choose to spend it on lawyers you never see it again.
I say close the damn schools for a year. Maybe the teachers and their stupid parents supporting this nonsense will get smarter through osmosis, but probably not.
