Random thoughts on teachers as millionaires.

Does the study take into account spouses? I'm thinking perhaps a lot of the teachers have spouses, ex-spouses, late spouses in other occupations that might pay more than a career in education.

My father, a teacher, passed away in 1981, at age 58, before he was able to retire.
My mother, passed away just a couple of years ago at age 95. She had a few part-time jobs over the years, but was mostly a housewife/stay-at-home mom.

While not quite achieving millionaire status, my mother managed to accumulate on the order of 1/2 million before she passed away. Growing up in the depression might have had something to do with a frugal nature for both my parents.
