The Public-Sector Workers on Which our Future Depends: Teachers

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.

    That doesn’t play when one deals with reality. Educational spending and educational results aren’t related in the real world.

    America spends more per student than most countries yet under-performs compared to those same nations.

    The system is broken and ridding ourselves of the public sector unions is a necessary, though painful, step towards fixing that system.
