My experience leads me to believe that the idea that the average single teacher would accumulate more money over the course of a lifetime than the average single medical doctor is UNBELIEVABLE.

Nobody is debating that doctors make a lot more money than teachers. But doctors also tend to start their money-earning careers at a later age and with a lot more student loan debt. And I'm pretty sure that the vehicles in the doctor's parking lot are a lot more expensive that what you see in the teachers' lot. Doctors likely also live in a much more expensive neighborhood, eat at better restaurants, take fancier vacations, etc. There may not be that much left at the end of the month, even with a fantastic income.
