Sure, I'd adjust my numbers a bit based on the particular school or class, and some teachers definitely work their way into cushier class schedules, too. But I've worked in both "good" and "bad" schools, and I think they're just exhausting in different ways. At the end of the day, 30 kids is 30 kids. Personally, I love the work, and actually prefer teaching in "bad" neighborhoods, but I couldn't do it for very many years at a stretch, and I'd never agree to do it year-round without breaks.
