Reader feedback: A teacher's work is never done

Re: Slovakia teachers worst paid among OECD countries, Sep 27-Oct 3, Vol 10, No 37

Most people think that when school is done for the day the teacher's work is also done. They are wrong. There is a lot of work to do after hours. A good teacher can put in 70-hour weeks.

If you cannot attract the best teachers you will have a lot of children picking potatoes. The future is in education. I feel teachers should be tested to see if they know what they are teaching is correct, and up-to-date in their field of education.

If a teacher has to work two jobs to make a good living, it takes away from the students. I am not a teacher but I do work at the university of Pittsburgh.
