of 'just give us more money and we will be successful'.... Bull puckey... been saying for years, introduce competition... you don't succeed, you are out of a job.. Just like the business world... nothing promotes success like competition.. nothing outs failure like competition.

on this much, i think you're absolutely right. teaching jobs should be compensated at a rate that business has to compete with education for the brightest minds available. and teachers should have to compete to land these highly compensated positions. if teaching paid wages equivalent to those in banking, medicine, law, technology, etc. you'd find american students matching up against the rest of the world right quick.

lousy teachers (however few or many there really are) will find their place in the service industry, or as teachers aides. competition! market forces! go capitalism!
