Depending on the state, teachers get paid like garbage
How much?
I'm looking at you Oklahoma. Here are the starting salaries

And this one has a graphic of average salaries. Average pay in Mississippi is nearly half that of NY

One sure has to be a special person to be a teacher. I mean it in a good way, obviously.

It looks like we are about the same on the pay scale, on average. Taken from the outdated OECD report:

But it appears we are just “poorer” in general, lol:

A couple of people I know here in Alberta who were teachers most of their lives and are now in their late 50’s making about or just below 100K CAD, on average. Of course, there is also good pension and whatnot.

This is also interesting though from jj’s second link:

These rankings do not account for regional cost-of-living differences. Last year, an analysis from NPR and EdBuild showed that the rankings changed when cost of living is taken into account—for instance, New York dropped to No. 17 on the list.

Interestingly, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police salaries, for example, are (directly from the RCMP website):

When you successfully complete the Cadet Training Program and have been offered employment, you will be hired as a Constable at an annual salary of $53,144. Usually, within 36 months of service, your annual salary will have increased incrementally to $86,110.

Salary scale:
- Entry: $53,144
- 6 months service: $69,049
- 12 months service: $74,916
- 24 months service: $80,786
- 36 months service: $86,110


And up from there. In addition, during the whooping 26-week long training they are talking about:

You will receive an allowance during your 26-week training. The current cadet recruitment allowance is $525/week. The RCMP also covers your room and board, uniform, training courses, insurance and travel to and from Depot.

Kind of shows where the priorities are. I guess it takes a lot of good old policing to deal with those poorly educated drymounters.

Funny enough, the daycare people (while mostly not “very” educated) make next to drymount all. My wife used to be on the board of directors at the local daycare when the first daughter went there. What a fudge show.

Which brings us to fin’s point in the Moss thread.

^ Lol. Don’t think I ever screamed on a rollercoaster.

On the COVID subject, an article at CBC today: COVID-19 conspiracy theories creating a 'public health crisis' in Canada, experts say

Study finds almost half of Canadians believe at least one unfounded theory about COVID-19

... Another study published in May at Carleton University indicated 46 per cent of Canadians believed at least one of four unfounded COVID-19 theories: the virus was engineered in a Chinese lab; the virus is being spread to cover up the effects of 5G wireless technology; drugs such as hydroxychloroquine can cure COVID-19 patients; or rinsing your nose with a saline solution can protect you from infection.


I really thought we were better than this. I imagined 10-15%, perhaps. Make it a disappointing 20. But half or nearly half? fudge man. Not sure what the drymount is wrong with people. Education? Perhaps. But then the article states that:

"This is a Canadian challenge," he explained. "People across levels of education, across age groupings, across political ideas, all are susceptible to misinformation online. This is not a phenomenon that is unique to a particular community."

I blame X-Files.

What’s most frustrating though, except for the fact that these people are allowed to vote, they insist that their opinion is just as valid as mine or anyone else’s.

People kind of suck.

Talked to my father-in-law on the subject today, his take was that this is why you don’t want to talk to people about anything other than weather and other irrelevant fudge. There is probably a reason he is a marine biologist, lol. I always laugh when he talks about people. “People are crazy” is what he always says, but the emotion that he puts into those words is what makes it hilarious every time.

I had to end a video chat with a friend yesterday after they said first that trump is NOT A RACIST and then "I'm sure he had good reason to believe those kids deserved the death sentence" re: Central Park Five. Covid-19 strikes again. Made it about 15 minutes chatting before that relationship was killed.
