    Yes, I suppose it would.

    But, we can have religious people (part time pastors and the like) teaching in the public schools now, they just can't indoctrinate their students.

    What you're suggesting is not merit pay, but market pay.
    It might be possible to get the unions to compromise on that issue, maybe.

    We don't have teacher unions here in Virginia that have anything to do with it.

    I was born and raised in Michigan. I know the damage unions can do.

    I know what you mean about the pay. I retired in 86 and then two weeks later I was right back to work for the Army as a DA Civilian. None of my kids followed me into the army/military but one of my grandson's has.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I have a couple of friends I knew in highschool that teach. They are superb teachers and love teaching. They are also getting their masters and angling for administration positions because that's the only way to make decent money.

    Does that mean you would take Sister Mary Margaret's ruler away?

    In a cage match, she'd wipe the floor with any wrestler I've ever seen. She was like a samurai with that bugger.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    The main reason for that is because if they ever quit, there are 500 resumes on the superintendent's desk.

    When I walked for my MBA, I was stunned at how many in the crowd of caps and gowns were education majors.

    The supply of teachers is cyclical. When I started out, back in '66, there was a severe shortage, which was a good thing from my point of view. Now, there are more teachers than jobs. There have been several shortages and over supplies over the years.
