    I think these teachers should come into the real world where the rest of us pay a portion of out healthcare just to have health care and the we also pay deductibles and co-pays. Maybe if they do not want to do that then the school boards should ONLY have the teacher him/ herself covered and let their better half cover the rest of the family. The rest of the real world also is not handed a pension anymore but have to plan and save ourselves.
