  • - Sorry for having 43 tardies.

  • (laughing)

  • (pop music)

  • - I have certain teachers that are cool,

  • and they'll be like, "Well, do you need help with this?"

  • And they'll like, hold you after class

  • and help you out with stuff.

  • Well others, they don't care.

  • They're just, "Okay, I'm here to teach,

  • "get paid, and leave."

  • - Something I hate about teachers

  • is that sometimes they give too much homework.

  • Or they expect a lot but they don't really

  • give a good lesson.

  • (pop music)

  • - On average, how much did teachers spend out of pocket

  • in 2016 on supplies for the classroom and students?

  • - I mean, like, in elementary school,

  • you use like, crayons and markers.

  • - In high school, it's basically all given to you, I think.

  • - 260. We usually bought the supplies, so.

  • - I'd say like the middle, 480.

  • - Yeah, 480.

  • - D, 480. - D.

  • (bell dinging)

  • - No way. - No.

  • - I thought that the school gave them everything.

  • - I have a specific teacher who, she gets there

  • at 6:00 in the morning for help sessions until 8:00,

  • and then after school she stays there until 6:00,

  • so it's like an extra two hours she's there

  • before and after school.

  • She's not getting paid for it, either,

  • but she's just there to make sure us students

  • are succeeding in her class.

  • As of 2014, over what percent of public school teachers

  • in the US work second jobs outside of school?

  • I know they're not paid a lot.

  • - C?

  • - Yeah. - Yeah, so 30%.

  • - So C, 30%.

  • - I think 20%.

  • - A, 20%. - Yeah.

  • (bell dinging) - That's still a lot, though.

  • - [Man] Would you guys become teachers?

  • - Yes. - No.

  • You? (laughing)

  • - Yeah.

  • Almost what percentage of teachers quit within five years

  • of starting their teaching career?

  • - My teachers from elementary school,

  • they were like one and done, so --

  • - Oh really? - ... they would do a year,

  • and then they would leave.

  • - Maybe, C, 20%?

  • - Yeah. C, 20%. - C, 20%.

  • (bell dinging) - Wow.

  • That's a lot.

  • - Maybe the students are mean to them,

  • or give 'em a hard time.

  • - What percent of teachers are affected

  • by high stress levels on the job?

  • - C?

  • - Yes, C, 93%.

  • - I think it's C, 93%.

  • Because I'm learning that it's very stressful and expensive.

  • (bell dinging) - Yeah.

  • - Yeah, that makes sense.

  • - It makes me realize how much teachers put in,

  • and sometimes they don't receive it from the students.

  • - All you hear is like, "Oh, I hate school.

  • "I don't wanna do my homework, blah blah blah."

  • And like, teachers, maybe some of them it's like

  • their dream job to teach, and to like work in education

  • and stuff, so it's kind of sad that students

  • can be rude sometimes.

  • Like, we should just, you know, wake up and be happy

  • that we're -- you know.

  • - Instead of sleeping in class, and disrespecting. So.

  • (gentle music)

- Sorry for having 43 tardies.
