BCTF demands simply don’t add up

What are the other 20,000 teachers doing besides collecting a good pay check each month?

Editor:

There are 500,000 thousand students and 40,000 teachers in the public school system today.

Divide the amount of teachers into the amount of students and you come up with a 12.5 students per teacher. This means that 20,000 teachers could take care of 24 students per class. What are the other 20,000 teachers doing besides collecting a good pay check each month?

Now they want a $5,000 signing bonus, plus smaller class sizes too? Where else can you get a good paying job with three months holidays each year?
