Happy News! A Group of Teachers Wins the Lottery

In these tough economic times, there's one group of teachers that doesn't have to worry about making ends meet. Fifteen educators in Shasta County, CA hit the $76 million jackpot on Monday!

The team of administrators, teachers, a school nurse, and a psychiatrist have been playing the same numbers for seven years. The winning assistant principal said he's happy to see people who chose careers in education finally strike it rich.

Since a basic understanding of statistics would keep most from playing the lottery, I'm assuming this group doesn't include any math teachers!

And the school won't need to hire an entire new staff right away at least. Most of the winners say they plan to keep their day jobs!

I was told this was my old friend and former principal. Congrats - Wish you the best- The "Vote of Confidence" gang thinks this is just great. 7th grade Geography

I think a smaller payout like 3 million produces much more happiness than a huge payout like 47 million.

Lottery = tax on the poor. Never mind. I got up late and hadn't been properly caffeinated yet.

True teachers, they will keep their jobs, even after winning the lottery. I only wish my kids will have teachers that committed to their jobs!

that's like the show a few years ago that didn't last very long when a group of friends all played the numbers and won a HUGE mega millions. i think that it's nice when that happens and i'm happy for the teachers. (granted i'd be happy to win that but oh well.) the only downside to so many people winning is that the payout was like $47M which means that they each only get about $3M...not that i'd complain with that kind of money.
