Are Teachers Being Overpaid? That's a Falllacy

Now that almost everyone, even those without enough authority and knowledge, speak and write about education reform, it is healthy to read a favorable, well written article in the New York Times. Nicholas D. Kristof makes a case for American educators, something many are afraid to shout in these precise days. Teachers, here and worldwide are underpaid whether we consider the standards comparative to others careers.

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.
