Stricter with the screening process

A young man dies and goes to Heaven, where he finds he is third in line at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter is taking a much-needed break, so an angel is admitting the newly arrived to Heaven.

The Angel tells the three new arrivals that because so many drug dealers and other criminals have managed to sneak into Heaven that St. Peter must now be a little stricter with the screening process. Each person is required to state his former occupation and tell his or her yearly salary.

The first man in line says, “I was an actor, and I earned 10 MILLION last year.”


The angel says, “Okay, you may enter.”

He turns to the man in line and asks him about his life.

She states, “I earned 1 MILLION as an attorney.” The angel thinks for a moment and then lets him in, too.


He turns to the third one in line and asks, “What have you done with your life?”

The man replies, “I earned $8,000 last year . . .”

“Oh,” the angel interrupts. “What did you teach?


This is sad but true.
Our teachers are paid the basic minimun and are responsible for our children 6-8 hours a day and for at least 12 years of thier lives…molding them, teaching them…there are teachers out there who can change a childs life forever.


Our education systems fails our children.

I say “more money to the teachers, more money to the school systems and less to the politicians!”

They are building prisons as fast as they can…but not schools…does anyone else see the irony in this?
