In view of Sandy's devastation maybe they don't have those awful jobs any longer, or at least for a while as cleanup begins. These people are so ungrateful it makes me sick! Quit teaching which is pretty secure with a better than average salary, and go look for another job that pays you "more fairly". What do you have to offer an employer? May be a nurse or brain surgeon? Or, an airline pilot? A retail clerk? Gee whiz, you can't or won't do any of those? These teachers should all be ashamed of themselves but they aren't because they are also a big part of those with their hands out for "what they deserve". If our children were really getting great educations I might feel differently towards public school teachers.
