LETTERS: Teacher's Vacation

To the editor:

Reference the article, “Summer vacation isn’t really a vacation” (June 30). Welcome, teacher, to the real world.

You have neighbors next door, across the street, down the street, maybe relatives and they don’t get three months of vacation every summer.

You don’t see working-class people writing articles about how they fix their houses and do other home chores, all the while working full-time jobs 12 months a year. Teacher, that’s because they live normal lives in a normal world.

The education system is abnormal. I know of no other employer who gives employees three months vacation a year. And you do not say thank you to the working class that pays your wage.
