    if you seriously believe that teachers firstly don't work in the summer and secondly are PAID in the summer. They are not. And they do work, off contract, off the clock.

    What do you do, watch MSM, listen to Fox and believe that shit?

      Given my mother and grandfather were public school teachers in a big city I think I do know something about it.

      They weren't paid during the summer.  The Union lobbied against it -- even though that would have lessened the burden on the City -- they got their full year's pay over the course of 9 months.

      Nice.
