    I'm not going to dramatically reject the claim about the intellectual rigor of a candidate's background. What I would object to is the notion that pedagogy is somehow easy. It's not. It's something that I respectfully admit is a very difficult subject. Nevertheless, I would suggest that I was not always impressed with what was required to acquire content knowledge per subject.

    The rest, yeah, it's usually not worth rebutting because it's more populist mumbo-jumbo.

    I voted no, though i do support a better pay for teachers overall. But i agree with other posters before, that will not necessarily increase quality of education.
    Overall education funding is suffering, with teachers not even having resources for copies etc. available in certain examples.
    That lack of funding definitely hurts teachers salary as well, and a lack of competitive pay does not attract enough into this profession, even if they would be good at their job and working with enthusiasm.

    Populist? If anything, my opinions are anti-populist.

    Go up to any average Joe and say the word "teacher". They'll give you a look that suggests you said "warm apple pie".

    Ask about quality of education, Add the word union to "teacher," and then you'll really get what average Joe thinks.

    I do think there is some inertia with employment. Persoanally I have always needed change, but I know many people who get comfortable in a job and never try to improve their lot in life.

    No. That's what you're apparently suggesting. What I'm suggesting is when you offer more pay to a profession like teaching you will see more higher qualified applicants that will apply to your area. Not saying that just anybody won't apply, but then that's where you check through the resumes and evaluate the proper person.

    I'm not convinced that any of the uneducated populace will cringe the way they should when you say "union". Many still think (for some strange reason) that unions are good.

    mak: I know some folks like that, but the vast majority of people--I've seen at least--go for better pay and benefits--especially if they're raising kids.
