Well if he's an officer 152 dollars a day still dosnt take care of his basic pay with allowances, that would mean he would make 55grand a year in the military, sorry charlie but that aint happenin.

Except he wouldnt be getting paid for weekends as a teacher, so the figure is closer to 40k (just under). Well within an officers range with more than 10 years of service.

This story is all hype. Still.

Yep, forcing someone to pay $152 dollars a day to serve his country is hype.

Really? Where does the guy actually making the payments say he is being forced? Apparently you have a position where Tenure and length of employment mean very little.

When you take FMLA, that time does NOT count towards your retirement or vesting. It wouldnt suprise me at all to see that the teachers union in this guys district has made an agreement with the administration which defines a minimum amount of service per year to qualify towards retirement or tenure. Have you even considered that the teacher approached the administation and asked for a way to protect those benefits?

No wonder Fox and CNN and MSN are rushing to make news with viewpoints. Apparently facts arent as important to relay to the public as an opinion to cling to instead of making up your own mind.

Read the article, it says he has to pay $74 for the substitute and $78 a day from his pay.

You obviously have no reading skills.

No wonder animals sometimes eat they children. Apperantly they can not read simple words and put together a thought process.

Yes Flub, I lack reading skills. Apparently where you learned to read they also taught you the psychic ability to read stuff that isnt even written. A useful skill for sure.

Just because he has agreed to pay that money, doesnt mean he was forced.

Half assed journalism for keen analytical minds. A good slogan for that paper.

The article is missing key information to make a good determination as to if this teacher is being screwed over. While away for the 2 weeks, is he still receiving his teacher's salary?

I can understand the outrage if he were docked the 10 days pay for not being in the classroom, but if he is still receiving the cash from the school district, then I have a hard time screaming "outrage". I'm not too keen on his paying for the substitute, but I can understand the forfeit of military pay (again if he is receiving his salary, hard to tell since it is not confirmed in that article.).

This would be kin to anyone of us losing our jury pay when we have to take a day off from work (if you're salaried). I know whooo jury pay....6 bucks, but the principle is the same, we're being called by the gov. to do a job and most employers (at least mine) require you to forfeit the 6 bucks to receive that day's pay.

If he is indeed coming out on top by almost 600 bucks, I have a hard time with the call of foul. Like I said, the article does not do very well at painting the whole picture.
