    Not the same at all. If you don't like your job you can leave. Students in public school are FORCED to stay in school til they are 16. If you have an employee that isn't cutting it you fire them. You can't fire a student. There is nothing similar about the deal. Nothing at all.

    My point remains intact.

    As a general rule, private schools pay less and teachers there have less education. There are exceptions, of course.

    [QUOTE=ChezC3;1062477685]But then that goes back to the child, his or her aptitude and drive, not simply a matter of a teacher's ability.

    YES!

    She loved teaching there, but at some point had to leave. She felt she'd rolled the dice enough without being able to afford medical insurnace and needed to start building a retirement plan so in her late 20's she took a teaching job in the public sector.

    Yes, but standards also need to be raised across the board.

    I think we can all agree that our education system needs fixing. What do you think?
    Don't you think everyone should make at least $100,000 per year?

    Of course all teachers shouldn't be paid a minimal $100K salary. There is exactly NOTHING showing doing so would improve education whatsoever. It would make more sense to think it would attract gold-diggers who don't give a damn about education children and only want the $$$.

    Of course, you certainly have no suggestion how to pay for that either, do you? Raise property/school taxes 100% more?

    I have yet to see anyone post ANY proof that other countries have better educational systems because their teachers are paid more. Have you?

    Those states have centralized systems.

    Centralized but not nationalized. I really want a national curriculum, refreshed every 10 years, where the best educators and scientists in the nation come together and agree on a single base curriculum for every school in the nation so that everyone in 10th grade is learning the same things as everyone else in 10th grade and a kid can leave one school in California and go to a school in Maryland and have the same general thing going on. The problem with the current system is states like Texas and California can hold the entire nation hostage by adopting bizarre school curriculums. Take the current Texas stupidity. Because of their textbook buying power, they can essentially screw up the education of many other states. Luckily, all 14 textbook publishers have told Texas where they can shove their new curriculum, which is a good thing. Now Texas can't get textbooks that reflect their idiotic ideas.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
