So, riddle me this: how can a dodgeball-supervisor (“gym teacher”) need 50% preparation time? How can a clay-playing superintendent (“arts teacher”) spend 12 hours to prepare one week of child-play? How can a meatball-lieutenant (“home economics teacher”) only be expected to work 25 hours/week? These are all primary school teachers.

Anybody supporting the teachers in the current conflict, remember THESE are the positions where people will be expected to do a bit more (read: any) work. Nobody expects a real teacher (math, Danish, English, German, French, science) to work without preparation. The counties and superintendents just want a bit more flexibility, so a person who has had 25 years to read up on the rules for dodgeball is allowed to put in more than 25 hours of real work a week.
