They get paid 29.75. Almost double Rye High and almost 30% more than U of T (Chinese University Of Toronto AKA 99% Enterance Avg. all from Private China schools were they give 98% in English to chinks who don´t speak a lick of english).

In Toronto area here are your Choices:

1) Go to york where sciences suck but be surronded by Hot chicks and hot profs
2) go to rye high where the profs are probably higher than the students
3) go to U of China (U of T) and get surronded by Stinky chinks who speak no english and have 0 social skills. Be surronded by profs who don´t give a flying fuck any more and just shake their head when they ignore the 30th. broken english question they don´t understand.



Those are your choices. You like to learn? Go to te States
