I think it is professionally unsustainable and bad policy to require the teachers in your system to be superhuman individuals who work a 60-80 hour work week in the first place, and pay them as if they work a normal work week in the second.
So, I'm glad to see this article in the Times-Picayune.
I discontinued teaching not because I am lazy and do not have a work ethic. I stopped teaching because I was asked to go from my usual 65 hour work week to an 80 hour work week with no increase in pay, while attending (and paying for) less-than useful teacher certification courses at the same time.
I don't blame my boss at the time for asking me to do that. Lord knows she worked 80 hour weeks, too. She was just trying to make the school work with the paltry resources she was allocated.
