S and M, there are two problems with executive salaries;
1.) The Board decides what to pay itself;
2.) As a result, the pay is often in the millions.
Teachers are poorly paid given that they have a degree and a teaching qualification, and given how hard they have to work.
Neither LP's little dig nor Dr Good Vibe's anecdote reflect my experience of teachers. I don't think LP would find teaching particularly easy work.
Dr GV, I don't think your figures on what these teachers were paid is accurate, and I don't know in what circumstances that could come about.
It is nothing about rules, S and M , it is just that informed, reasoned opinions are of more value than ignorant ones.
That's why all government schools should be privatised. Governments have proven that they cannot run an effective education system.
Governments should stick to roof insulation, education is too important to leave to Governments to manage.
