I wonder why no one has cleared up the misconception that teachers are paid all year and get lots of vacation time?

The reality is, teachers are contracted to work 183 days and they are paid for only 183 days. The school department spreads the pay out throughout the entire year so that they can gain interest on the money that’s set aside.

Teachers do not get paid for a single holiday or vacation day. They are paid for 183 days and nothing more.
