The liberal Center for American Progress released a study that MLive did a story on which found that 19 percent of Michigan teachers work a second job.

LANSING -- Teaching is a full-time job, but for almost a fifth of Michigan's educators, it's not their only job.

ForTheRecord reports: Teachers in Michigan contractually work less than 200 days a year.

For example, the Lansing School District requires 180 teaching days in their collective bargaining agreement.

The average teacher salary in the Lansing School District is $62,203 in 2012-13, according to the Michigan Department of Education. The state average is about $62,000 annually.

And the district offers teachers who are off on summer break the ability to apply for summer school vacancies at the rate of $32 an hour.
