    One other observation of your messages. Do college professors put their salaries on the wall?
    In fact, many college professors have other employment and teach because they want to. They make most their money elsewhere.
    Also, many college classes aren't taught by tenured professors at all.

    Oh, and I don't think they were excellent professors as they did not teach you to check out facts. The average college/university professor makes $81,000 per year on average.

    The average person make 3 major career (not just employment) changes in their lives. But it would seem that you think if a teacher decides to do something different with his/her life, there is something wrong with the system.

    Are you claiming they all (or most) left teaching because they found higher paying jobs?

    Were you a good teacher? It would seem the OP is claiming it is unlikely because if you were you'd have left for a better paying job. How much did your salary affect your teaching ability?

    So that story about someone who failed twice before becoming a teacher and, who knows, starting on his third failure, that story tells you that teaching should be a low-paying job?

    not at all, you wouldn't understand what is inside teachers,
    try understanding the "intrinsic" reward..
    now carry on with your teacher bash-fest .

    It took Limbaugh 3 times to get it right..
    Two bankrupcies paid by Uncle Sam..
    Took me 5 years to pay off my loans..
    Now retired, I'm back at it for many reasons, and my nieces and nephews in college are at the top .

    LOL on "teacher bash-fest" because I don't think all teachers should be paid at least $100K. Not to be insulting, I don't think your career was of vastly greater skills demand nor so greatly more burdensome than 95% of other people.

    Please link to your messages of how police officers are underpaid.

    Re: Do you think there is a correlation between teacher pay and quality of education?

    At like $12,000 per student the problem is so little of that gets to the teacher. With trillion dollar deficits and racing towards national insolvency we should be spending something like $2500 a student. Great teachers could easily make 100-150,000 a yr with quality of education for the student a couple orders of magnitude better than it is at about 1/5 the expense to taxpayers. Money is not the problem, it is the poor design of the education system.
