Yes, we do need to support our public school teachers. I live here because the public school district is beyond average and is one of the best in the U.S. Sure, homeowners pay a lot for real estate taxes, but we want excellent public schools. I would suggest that there is a direct correlation between our district’s average teacher salary ($100k) and the unmatched success of its students. Our teachers are worth every penny and should not be vilified.
