One other update, the average teacher salary in the USA is $55,000, not $42,000 and the average Florida teacher salary is $46,000. We should be fighting for the Norwegian (and Indian) teachers.

I challenge you to prove your BS claims by actually naming a district
where the contracted teaching hours are as you say, only low twenties
per week.

My son's school is 8:00 to 2:30. They are lined up at the door to leave at 2:15. Take away Lunch, Recess and an Activity, < 5 hours of teaching time. All Florida primary schools are like that.
