Nice to know there are some people in education able to pay their mortagages, finally. Most likely, many began as teachers barely able to qualify for home ownership. These are people with advanced degrees who are raising our children with us. Compare their saleries to peers in accounting, engineering management etc.

Actually, teacher, firefighters and police officers can all qualify for mortgages through hud and can even get as much as 50 percent off the FMV of homes through HUD, http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/program_offices/housing/sfh/reo/goodn/gnndabot All they have to do is say they will remain in the home for at least 3 years.

I would love to double all there salaries if they would only go back to the basics and stop all these other enabling programs. That to me only, seems to take away monies From the basics. Reading, Writing, Arithmetic, and center not left Social Studies. Including expeling from the district disipline problems not just suspending.
