Varsity Blues

Football is followed with the passion of a religion in west Texas. The guys on the team are friends, and viewed as heros by most of the town. The star of the team, played by Paul Walker, has a recurring knee injury that the coach injects with cortizone regularly to keep him on the field. The injections catch up to him, and he has to quit. Mox, plasyed by James Van Der Beek, now takes the starring postion. He and the other players begin to get discouraged by the coaches determination and sometimes cruelity to have a perfect team. sometime

Continuity mistake: In the whipped cream bikini scene, when Mox pulls back from kissing the cheerleader he has whipped cream on his shirt. In the next shot it's not there.

Question: Can someone tell me why Ms. Davis is a stripper? She surely makes enough as a teacher so why is she a stripper?

Answer: Actually, in the United States public school teachers do not make very much money. While it is unusual for a school teacher to be an exotic dancer (doing so would jeopardize your teaching job were it discovered), it is not uncommon for teachers to have a second job to help pay bills. Exotic dancers typically work nights and can make a good amount of money in tips, so it would be a good second job for a teacher provided you can keep it secret.

Thank you but I must disagree. I've read a book by Ann Coulter about teacher earnings, teacher awards, some were caught shopping at fine retailers during school hours, one social studies teacher who made around $42,000 a year had called in sick several times to pursue a career in pro wrestling.

Well, I'm a public school teacher of 20+ years, and many of my colleagues, including myself, have to work additional jobs in order to make ends meet, be it tutoring, working part time jobs, or working full time in the summer. This varies from district to district and with personal situations, of course, but teaching is hardly a job for people who like to 'shop at fine retailers.' Not that I'm accusing Ms. Coulter of having a political agenda and trying to claim that those odd examples are the norm.

Define "enough money"? Some cherry picked examples don't make a universal truth, and you say yourself that one teacher earning 42k had a second job. If you've got multiple children to feed or high rent or high medical bills or a parent to care for even a large salary isn't always enough. A book by a famously controversial (read: biased and hated) author doesn't mean people aren't allowed to have second jobs for whatever reason they deem fit.

Depends on the state. In 2018, schools in Oklahoma were shortened to a 4-day week so some teachers could get second jobs at Walmart to help make ends meet.
