If you can only read one editorial today, I recommend John Stossel's editorial about the myth of public schools needing more money. (link here)
Too often, we equate the value of the service offered with the amount of wages which should be paid. The problem with this thinking is what it creates: People who pursue the profession just to make money. Education is far too important to be allowing these kinds of people to make a living.
While we should pay teachers enough to live on, I think it should not be enough to live too well. Teachers should want the job more than the money.
I also think the NEA (the teacher's union) MUST GO! How much more damage do they have to do before we realize they are ruining our educational system?
