Being a teacher is a privilege, not a right

South Surrey – The Editor, Re: “No school Thursday in Surrey and White Rock,” the Now, May 27.

In the real world if you do not like your job or your pay, you get a better job.

I believe being a teacher is a great job, considering the hours worked for pay given. Now, please remember to factor in wages for life and then a teaching position becomes one of the best jobs ever. Summer off every year, regular long weekends and you only have to really work five hours a day. To be fair, the good ones who still care work more than that.

Pink slip all teachers, start fresh based on ability. Being a teacher is a privilege not a right.
