I believe all teachers need to start out at an average salary and earn their way to raises and benefits based on the performance of their students. I bet our children would get a much better education, and the good teachers would be rewarded for their hard work.
I think teachers work hard, but so do a lot of other people in the private sector. Unfortunatly, most businesses are not in a position to reward their employees with raises and benefits.
If you want to be in business, you have to worry about the bottom line and live within your means. Hopefully the state will figure that out before it’s too late.
