    Umm you have to compare the welfare benefits in any given state to the teacher salaries in that state.
    contrastng anything in Hawaii to a different national average is totally retarded.

    Hawaii also has (I believe) the highest cost of living

    This is Sith we are speaking about...

    Understanding when a comparison is actually valid is a huge step for someone that doesn't even understand the nuances of using the word "has" versus "have"....

    I work in a state that does not pay its teachers well. Never have I been offered a teaching gig that paid less than 18$ an hour.
    Never have I taken a job as a teacher making less than 20$.

    That is 20$ an hour, 40 hours a week, 52 weeks a year. In reality, I work < 40 weeks a year.

    Also, Alaska may be paying 15ish dollars an hour for welfare, but they are also paying 60,000 dollars a year on average for their teachers.

    I cannot help but wonder if the annual oil stipend paid to each Alaskan resident is being counted as "welfare" in this assessment...

    Nice, $41,600? Better than OK. >_<

    You can get up to $34,000/year...IF you have a doctorate. Not a huge drop down to bachelor's degree at $31,600.

    [Edit:] Starting pay, of course. You can spend ten years in school (ish - not sure how long a doctorate on average takes for educators) AND 25 years as a teacher and make as much as $46,000/year.

    In all fairness, I work for a charter school. We are in a bit more of a competition based business. We compete hard to keep students and we compete hard to get/keep great teachers. That includes paying slightly higher than the district we are a part of. Plus another 350 a month as our benefits. We can spend that money on our private healthcare, use it to purchase the company healthcare, or pocket it.

    $350 is that all it costs you for medical care?
    thats cheap, my last company plan was $600 a month and that was just a regular ole run of the mill blue cross medical plan, that didnt involve dental or short term disability vision or anything else. it would have be an additional $200 more if I carried the premium plan

    all together I was shelling out around $800 a month to carry full benefits and that was out of a $2600-$2800 month earnings before taxes.

    Why do we have to have so many baseless retarded posts? These things don't help teacher pay, they hurt it because apparently your education did nothing for you.

    I would have to pull my pay stubs, but for my company's health care (vision/med/dental) it costs me ~$160 a month. With my disability (long and short term) cost I think it's around $200-$225. This is with BCBS.

    I think mine is still under 200 a month that I pay although the company pays a lot more, was just being conservative. Although I believe we finally got word that we might have a 25% increase in health care costs depending on the plan next year, need to look into the email we had gotten sent out. I think my family plan is closer to 300 a month.

    I don't usually pay attention to things like that though, as long as my savings and investments keep increasing like I expect. If they are off significantly then I start looking into things but they usually aren't.
