I said for Kindergarten. You link has no pay lister for K. She started at $50 back then. Moved up to $75 by about the mid 80's. She had a Masters. Masters got more because K was considered crucial.That's why she got so much. Anyhow, that's what I was told when my eyeballs popped out at her salary. Your link is 2010. The other pay scale matches what I said. My family's friend made over $60 teaching High School in the 90's.
I never said all teachers make that kind of money either. Not everybody has a high income in that area and the cost of living was not as high when she started.
I don't see any blanket statement. I said an eastern metro city for two people. Can you read? Here is what I posted. It may be a lot for that area but it's still part-time according to that teacher. If another area is cheaper to live in, then the pay would be lower to match. So, even if it was part-time it would cost less to live.
I've a friend who is a teacher in a eastern metropolitan city and he says " It's the best paid part-time job ever." He has 8 kids too. I've an in-law who was paid $75 for K in Boston in the mid 80's even.
Before you read the “Outside The Lines” report, consider this:
Taping the opposing team’s sideline still isn’t banned; only taping the opposing team from the sideline is illegal.
Also remember this:
Taping the opposing team from the sideline wasn’t banned until 2006, yet the report cites examples as far back as 2000. ~NESN
