In most of the country I would say you are right, but in New York, teacher are paid VERY well and frankly we get darn good results. Our teachers are required to get masters degrees. Their starting pay isn't all that great around 35-40k, but they get multiple bumps every year. Many 20+ year teachers who coach or sponsor clubs are well over 100k for a lot less than the 2000 hours of work that a normal 9-5 50 week a year job provides. The down side is if they get burn out they won't quit and leave these great hours, pay and benefits. We have a lot of arrogant teachers. And we have a lot of bitter teachers who would have retired years ago if it weren't for the 6 figure salary. They also can't just switch districts. If they switch districts they lose their seniority (called years of service) and go back down on the pay scale. So some of them are truly trapped by their lifestyles and mortgages.
