I'll invite to read the article in its entirety, but to me the most powerful paragraph is this one: "You might get the impression that we’re going bust because teachers are overpaid."
That’s a pernicious fallacy. A basic educational challenge is not that teachers are raking it in, but that they are underpaid. If we want to compete with other countries, and chip away at poverty across America, then we need to pay teachers more so as to attract better people into the profession.
