And by wealthy, we mean willing to take a girl out to the local Chez McDonald's.

Brandon Wade, the website's founder and CEO, said the average public school teacher registered on the site is between the ages of 28- and 33-years-old, and asks for approximately $3,000 a month in financial assistance from her sugar daddy.

$3,000 a month?

From $5 mall hollah in high school to $3,000/month mistress after college? Way to aim low, hoes.

This stuff is legal, yet we still waste countless resources on shutting down "illegal prostitution"?

Make most prostitution legal (except forced and underage situations), and get rid of most of the drug usage illegality (you can still make the manufacture/distribution illegal for the highly "serious" drugs, and getting rid of trying to go after users will also free up resources to go after those manufacture/distributors)... see how that frees up funds in our justice system.

Meh, they are just habituating the students to the idea of whoring themselves after they leave school.
 
2013-08-30 09:50:48 AM  
Sure there are. Democrats have been getting rich looting taxpayers there for decades.

I just saw an ad on the Tee Vee for Detroit Public Schools. They interviewed the one doctor that came out of DPS in the 80's. I wonder how much she got paid to say "I would recommend DPS to anyone. It works!"

I lold.

She's probably on that website.

There's not much that I won't do for my future students, but that....that's one of them. Then again, I won't be teaching in a major city.
 
2013-08-30 09:54:42 AM  
Of course there are wealthy men in Detroit. Why, some of their homes are valued at as much as $2000.00.
 
2013-08-30 09:55:49 AM  
The rich in Detroit are the ones who control the most neighborhoods, have the most guns and who souped up their cars with the most roll cages, ammo belts and spikes.  They also control all the oil resources and have the most guard dogs.

No man in a gyrocopter, ex cop or kid with a silly boomerang will stand in their way.

My wife is a teacher, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies...
 
2013-08-30 09:59:38 AM  
Of course there are wealthy men in Detroit, if you consider Grosse Pointe to be in Detroit. Also, I wonder if it ever occurred to Brandon Wade that many of the women listing "teacher" as their profession might be lying? After all, "teacher" (or "nurse") looks better on paper than "unemployed skank who wants someone to pay the bills".

They aren't doing it for their students. They're doing it for their mortgage and groceries.

They need to move somewhere where they pay their teachers well, like North Carolina.

Keep teacher salaries low and the quality of teachers you get suffers. Some people will still do it because they have spouses who make good money and/or they're just super committed to teaching. Many others will bail for better pay and less stress in a different profession.

Supply them with better raw material, and they might.
It's not like paying a coach based on a team's performance. Atheletes want to be there. They want to perform well.
How many students in the average classroom actually want to be there?

Agreed...

Does anyone know how they rate these teachers for these "scores"?  Is it based just on "How did your students score on tests" period, or, is it based on "How much did your students IMPROVE on scores from year to year"?  That to me is a much better indicator.

If a teacher gets a class that averages an 85 out of 100 on some standard testing, and those kids averaged an 88 last year,  vs. a teacher whose class averaged a 72 but those kids averaged 60 a year before.... I'd say the second teacher did a much better job, but, I don't know if that is how the system rates them right now.

I'd hope the latter, but, I wouldn't be surprised that the government is short sighted and just goes by "scores".

Get off your arse and hold your kids accountable then. Teachers can't polish turds. You expect kids who think living like Snooki is the be-all and end-all of life and couldn't care less about learning are going to turn into scholars overnight? Turn off the damn TV and make them study. Learning starts at home.

Also, until you start spending hundreds of dollars on your job without reimbursement, get over it.

/about to marry a teacher, and tired of seeing her upset because of arsehats like you who expect her to be a parent to their kid

No problem then. Let's just double the property tax and the sales tax in Detroit and every thing will be hunky dory in no time at all.

Which is partially due to the amount they spend out of pocket for their classrooms since wages are cut back.

Understandable, but probably reeaaaally awkward when they run into each other at restaurants.

The results are going to get worse in the coming year as they greatly raised the standards.

That's funny.  My wife is a teacher's assistant in a large North Carolina school district.  The teachers don't get paid that much more than the national average.

Anybody know what the national average is?

Exactly true. People seem to think that teachers are making out like bandits, and not realizing that they don't work a 9-5 job. Running extracurriculars. Most departments may have a total budget of around 1500$ spread across 10+ teachers for their class rooms. So guess who buys all the furniture, additional books, and classroom supplies? The teachers. And they don't expense it because the school can't afford to reimburse them.

Not to mention providing supplies to students who don't have them.  Students who don't have pencils, notebooks and other essentials end up getting them from the teacher who comes out of pocket to provide them

I don't think what they pay their teachers has anything to do with wage cuts. More like wanting extra cash for student debt maybe or just plain whoring.

Yup. Most sugar daddies have huge egos and pay to be seen with the girl, moreso than sex. For $3k/month, I'd expect more though

It's farking idiotic. You can't just decree that students shall perform better next year and expect it to happen. Where's the money to hire and retain high quality teachers, lower the student to teacher ratio, make funding between schools in low income areas more equal to those in high income areas, etc.? It's not there. The government and far too many parents just whine and insist that schools have to do better and kids have to score higher on tests.

You want better results, people? Spend less money on bombs and a hell of a lot more on education.

It's a bigger horrorshow than a lot of people realize. The kids are being taught only as much as they need to pass the tests, not enough to actually learn and think. They WILL pass the tests, but be useless as thinking, productive people.

Which means an large part of the teachers effort is spent on the 'left side of the intelligence bell curve' and on kids who just don't want to be there, while the smarter kids who would actually benefit from the attention get short changed.

If those kids are sufficiently self-motivating or have a great support system at home, they will turn out alright. But if there are some issues in that area, they will become bored, sullen, discouraged, trouble-makers.

Uh, isn't that a good goal? Isn't that the trick of teaching... to get to the ones who don't want to learn?

The kids who want to learn will learn. The kids with the good support system will make it. What about the rest?

it has been verified several times in the real world, if you target and remove the users the suppliers dry right the fark up. simple use should be 5 years in a tent jail in Blyhe. I am not talking ablut real medical use here i am talking tweekers coke heads and opiates. lok up the junkies and the dealers dry up. make ddrug use un  fun second time 15 years same tet jail in blythe. you want to get baked on grass as long as there are no kids involved and you are not driving at all go ahead and bake away.
