High Cost of Low Teacher Salaries

The NY Times:  “When we don’t get the results we want in our military endeavors, we don’t blame the soldiers. And yet in education we do just that. At the moment, the average teacher’s pay is on par with that of a toll taker or bartender. So how do teachers cope? Sixty-two percent work outside the classroom to make ends meet.”

That’s just plain ridiculous, people.
