Students are to define each term.
Question 11 is "crawling."
The student's answer "what babys do."
If you are not familiar with ceramics, this is the problem.....The first thing that is wrong with the answer is that it is incorrect. The second is that babies was spelled with a "y" rather than "ies."

Are you sick of highly paid teachers?
Teachers' hefty salaries are driving up taxes, and they only work 9 or10 months a year! It's time we put things in perspective and pay them for what they do... babysit!
We can get that for less than minimum wage.
That's right. Let's give them $3.00 an hour and only the hours they worked; not any of that silly planning time, or any time they spend before or after school.
Let's see... that would be $19.50 a day
(7:45 to 3:00 PM with 45 min. off for lunch and plan-- that equals 6 1/2 hours).
Each parent should pay $19.50 a day for these teachers to babysit their children.
Now how many students do they teach in a day... maybe 30 - 40?
Lets say 30 students...
So that's $19.50 x 30 = $585.00 a day.
However, remember they only work 180 days a year! I am certainly NOT going to pay them for any vacations. LET'S SEE....
That's $585 X 180 = $105,300 per year. hmm wait a minute... (Hold on! My calculator needs new batteries).
What about those special education teachers and the ones with Master's degrees? Well, we could pay them minimum wage ($7.75), and just to be fair, round it off to $8.00 an hour.
That would be $8 X 6 1/2 hours X 30 children X 180 days = $280,800 per year.
Wait a minute... there's something wrong here! There sure is!
The average teacher's salary (nation wide) is $50,000.
$50,000/180 days = $277.77/per day/30 students=$9.25/6.5 hours = $1.42 per hour per student
...a very inexpensive babysitter and they even EDUCATE your kids!
WHAT A DEAL!!!!
On a side note....high school teachers have five or six classes, each with an average of 30 students
