    Assuming Simon doesn't delete this
    Teachers get a per diem pay for the number of days they work. That pay is distributed evenly over 10, 11, or 12 months depending on the district, the calendar, and the number of days teachers are contracted for.

    They don't earn money for days not worked (like in the summer), but may still recieve a paycheck if they have set up their pay schedule that way.

    Doug, you're right, and almost all teachers agree that reducing class size should be priority number 1. But, the teachers only follow orders from the district.

    As for Mr Vandelay (Seinfeld reference), the teachers will get paid a per diem for those 5 days. Take annual pay & divide by the number of working days (170-something i think) and that daily figure will be paid for each of the 5 days.

    You know, I've read this article over and over and I still don't see anything about a raise. Would you be so kind as to point out that fact in the text? Thanks!

    I would think that reducing class size would be a priority, rather than giving the teachers a $2.5 million dollar raise? Don't teachers get paid by the school year, or by the number of days they are in class?
