Letter to the editor: Support teachers

Support teachers

In reference to Smith Young’s and CJ Smothers’ recent letters to the editor on teachers and pay:

Teachers deserve every vacation break and holiday given to them. Most spend their own money for school supplies for their students. Now they want teachers to extend their time on “gun training” because parents want their children to be safer at schools. Teachers are there to educate — guards should be there for safety.

Most parents can’t control two or three kids at home and they want teachers to control and educate 20-plus students at one time, five days a week. For Smothers’ standards, teachers are well paid and make good money. As far as the teachers’ standard, they are underpaid for what the parents expect from them.

If you don’t work for an organization with good benefits and expect a generous retirement, what the hey…

Support teachers. The children they are spending time with are the future of this country.
