    The average pay is a right wing talking point that confuses people and distracts from the deeper issue which is teachers are underpaid.  Exactly where does your stat come from that states 50% of teachers are below average?  Bet I won't hear from you on that one.  In reality there is now quantifiable way yet too evaluate teacher effectiveness.  It doesnt exist and there is no magic formula so any measurement is faulty.  

    A masters degree is a masters degree regardless of field. There are alot of bad law school programs out there and this is true of all fields.  If you want to discuss the quality of a degree that is an entirely different conversation.  By making the point that less education is better than more education, you betray your own ignorance.  And, as usual a retort of your kind yet again avoids the central issue:  POVERTY. I guess you didnt take sociology either.  Makes me question the value of your education.

      No it isn't. People with a masters degree in electrical or mechanical engineering laugh at "education" degrees. There is just no comparison at all.

        Same electrical and mechanical engineers capable of handling a classroom? Im guessing not many.  Have you ever managed a classroom?  Also they all needed teachers going all the way back to kindergarten to put them on the path to those degrees.
