    Heck, I'm 57, retired once and hated it. I even taught school once in retirement. Where does she get off at wanting to retire at 47? I'm still enjoying work and working everyday.

    To retire menas she would have to work until she was 60 which means she would have workrd 47 years as she states. That menas she started teaching at 17. Don't think that's possible. Mike.

    It's about insurance. She would have to contribute to her retirement insurance package.

    The days of retiring with full insurance benefits are gone.

    Grubby, her words"
    “By the time I’m 60, I would have put in 43 years of service, earning a salary at the top of the pay scale. How does that save the district money? You could hire two people for the cost of one and encourage young people to join the profession. Right now, I would not recommend to my pupils to become a teacher in Michigan.”

    Subtract 43 from 60 that = 17. What am I missing?. Mike.
    Is this your logic like the draft status?

    I'm 61 and am being forced to retire early from teaching, all be it only a year early. Teachers in Illinois have nothing to gripe about they are well paid and have a great retirement system in place if the state of corupt politicans don't destroy it. The teacher in Michigan should be thankfull for her job and career. Yet another teacher/ libleral democrat that wants everything givien to her.

    Van Beek also said that it is likely that List bought “years of service” because she said she would have 43 years of service by age 60. Van Beek said that practice is basically extinct in the private sector.

    Don't know how to buy years of service, and don't care, but that is how she comes up with her number.

    Sounds like she is mad because she will have to pay more of her heath insurance when she retires, Teachers in this state can retire after 25 years of service, with a bring home retirement of “ALMOST” as much as if they were teaching, BUT they have to pay a high share of their heath insurance…..

    A previous post commented on Illinois teachers benefits. That is one of the problems in Illinois, an unsustainable retirement program for state employees that is bankrupting the state. Of course legal fees for governors and other frauds in government is also very high in Illinois.

    Not being able to retire after 47 years on the job is an outrage.

    Wait, what?
