I work for the retirement system (well, I retired from it but have been back part-time) in Wisconsin and I see the earnings of teachers across the state as part of my job, and I have good friends who are teachers. There is no way they are over-compensated for the job they do. I know I'm preaching to the choir. How can we not value the people who we expect to educate and care for our children?
And nuns. Nobody works harder than those women. I went to Catholic schools and sure, some of them were unhappy and mean. Some of every group is unhappy and mean. But the ones I remember, and the sisters I still know today, have shaped my life in ways I don't even realize, and ways no priest ever did.
