Teacher salaries -

The American Federation of Teachers reports that the average teacher salary in the school year 2004-2005 was $47,602, a 2.2 percent increase from the year before.  A 2.2 percent increase, and Cheney's pay for handing jobs to Halliburton, certainly one which should take no time, and should be illegal, since he should be doing his vice-presidential duties, could, at $150,000 pay for more than three teacher salaries each year.  Sad, isn't it to see such obvious corruption, and this is one small example.
