The state with the highest average teacher salary was Connecticut, at $57,760. California was a very close second, where the average teacher salary is $57,604. New Jersey teachers make approximately $56,635 per year. Rounding out the top five were Illinois and Rhode Island, with the average teacher salary at $56,494 and $56,432, respectively. The state with the lowest average teacher salary was South Dakota, at $34,039." Sep 24, 10 1:17 PM

Give us a break, littlejim, "Go get a job"?! Hey, if you're so above it, then why bother posting? But, since you are posting her, iit looks like you could do with some gainful employment yourself." Sep 27, 10 10:06 AM
Hah! I am not a teacher, but someone who respects educators. My kids did great when they were in elementary school and they are doing even better now, perhaps yours aren't hence your obsession with test scores and your disrespect for the teaching profession. I don't dismiss test results, I dismiss you interpretation of those results.
In countries that we hold up as examples of the best educators in the world, Findland, for instance, educators are considered the most valuable professionals in the country (and yes, they are well paid) and that respect and admiration once existed here, but people like you prefer to yell and scream and blame everyone else.
Where in any of my posts did I say good schools were not important? Don't use my posting as an excuse for your irrelevant rants. "Ignorant"? Take a look in the mirror. I have read your posts and your inability to accept responsibility has clouded your ability to reason. By the way, if the real world means thinking like you - forget it." Sep 28, 10 1:54 PM
progressnow is right on! double standard and others are completely misrepresenting what is actually being requested here. Why? Explain how this would have any effect whatsoever on your life. " Oct 1, 10 11:55 AM
If it has not effect on you, then why oppose it at all? And as far as a precedent being set, who cares? I am an agnostic and don't follow any religion but I could care less if Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, or Atheists want to put a black marking on a utility pole. " Oct 1, 10 12:16 PM
Yes, you're right, a small black demarcation on a utility post is the same as a 20 foot inflatable Buddha. You are using hyperbole to rationalize the irrational.

So, observant, me and my "quasi-moronic gangmates" (only one of whom I actually know and she has not even posted on this topic) have "driven you over the edge", huh? That was one short trip. By the way, the use of the word "retarded" is beyond childish and offensive." Oct 7, 10 12:52 PM
Hey, Ice the far right tea party leaders Christine O'Donell, Sharon Angle, Rand Paul, Jim DeMint, Sarah Palin, et al believe that if a 14 year-old girl is raped by her uncle she should be forced by the government to have the child. That is NOT an exaggeration of their stance. Talk about tyranny and fascism! And yes, Altschuler is pure evil. " Oct 7, 10 1:53 PM

Joe hampton never has a single, productive thing to add to any conversation. He only attacks and calls names. By the way, it IS hundreds. Do you read the newspapers, do you attend CAC and board meetings? You can insult women with your misogynist name-calling ,but all it proves is how ignorant you truly are. You want to know the real tyranny we face in this country? Tea party ditto heads filled with hate and bigotry." Oct 10, 10 11:52 AM

Millionaire Randy Altschuler was the founder and co-CEO of OfficeTiger, an Indian outsourcing company. In their Indian offices, Office Tiger paid “roughly a tenth” of what would be made for comparable work in the US. At its height, Altschuler’s outsourcing company had 10,000 employees in 9 countries, including Sri Lanka, India and the Philippines.
In a 2003 interview with the Financial Times, Altschuler even said “In India you get a much higher standard of person doing assistant work.”
You hate Tim Bishop, I get it, but what do you like about Altschuler?
