I feel teachers should be paid well and according to the student’s test scores. Some teachers I had were God awful human beings who could care less about anyone. Sometimes that $15 an hour job is all. some people can find even with a good education. I’d rather see people able to male ends meet than be bled dry to send money to those who wish to sit back and wait for free money because they refuse to work that below them a job.
Teachers are tragically underpaid, and education is tragically underfunded. This is THE KEY THING that needs to be addressed in order to change the cancerous anti-science and anti-intellectual rhetoric at the root of everything that is wrong here. It’s going to make sticking to our guns on real change in this department, and multiple generations, to work this out.
