Not a fan of Slate, but found this article about education and cost per child interesting....

Shit man, give me 26k a year per child, I will educate 4 children in my home, and I bet they score better than the average.....M-F, 8am-3pm, hell, I'll even car pool them from their home to my house to teach them. They will be educated, intelligent, in shape, knowledgeable about the world, etc etc etc.

I will even do it for the US average of 11k per student. Give me.....8 kids, all the same age. Be a fun experiment.

Pretty damn good argument for a voucher program....


Yeah. You'll educate them all right...with the back of your hand! 'You sassin' me, boy?!' Whack! Bat Haha!

Seriously though. Imagine if teachers got paid per kid. They'd make a fortune, so that's actually really effing cheap. Even at $7 per hour that's $56 per kid per day. So an average of 30 kids in a class means the teacher should be getting paid $1,680 a day or about $450,000 per year. The average teacher makes about 50k a year. So that's quite a bargain.

And speaking of money, hot off the presses....

Seattle Raises Minimum Wage to $15

Good on them. And sadly that's still not even a living wage - which is $18 per hour (averaged).
