Today is National Teacher Appreciation Day, and after THIS year, giving your kids’ teachers presents is the least you can do.
Well, t’s not the absolute least you can do. I’m going to do the absolute least: share some random stats.
Here’s National Teacher Appreciation Day by the numbers:
1. The average teacher works 10 hours a day and 52 hours a week.
2. 92.4% of teachers spend their own money on things for their classroom or their students.
3. Teachers make an average of 14% less money than other jobs that need the same level of education.
4. The average retirement age for teachers is 59 years old.
5. 20% of public school teachers have a second job outside of teaching.
So buy your kid’s teacher a damn Starbucks gift card today, man!
