Ed Etc.

Another pundit thinks teachers are way overpaid for their "part-time" jobs.

The claim has been debunked elsewhere. Chances are this guy is including benefits in the total, and even there it's likely false. (Update: Kudlow was using the negotiated top end salary of NYC teachers with 22 years of experience and a master's degree to distort what teachers actually make.)

Teachers don't eat on benefits. They also aren't "part-time" workers since they spend many, many hours off the clock working.
