    Nice, Here's another one for you.

    Johnny brings a present for his teacher

    1960- Teacher enjoys some nice home baked cookies during morning break, shares with other members of faculty and basically everyone's day is brightened

    2007 - Package is detonated by bomb squad. Johnny is depressed because of teachers reaction to his gift and kills himself. Everyone else is edgy because of "Terror situation", and class is disrupted causing everyone to be a day behind in their work causing them to work harder to catch up. Basically everyone's lives become more stressful except for Johnny who is dead.

    Just because some teachers are not doing their job doesn't mean that all teachers are not doing their jobs. There are a lot of truly outstanding teachers. While more money does not always solve problems, money is important. Certainly cutting salaries doesn't help anyone. There is no evidence whatsoever that private schools in general are better than public schools in general. In fact, there is a lot of evidence to the contrary. A good number of teachers--probably the majority--have master's degrees. Do you honestly think it is fair to pay such people less than $40,000 a year? Also, do you think an honest person can blame teachers, and only teachers, for failures in the educational system?
