  •  So it's silly? (4.00)
    How long would it take to take to pay off school debt for a lawyer making over 100K a year? How long would it take for a teacher making $40K? It's all proportional.

    But a lawyers salary goes a lot further than a teacher's.

    This is the attitude I'm talking about. It's silly to think that teachers should earn as much as lawyers. Why?

    I'm required to have a masters degree. I'm certified. I have to continue to take graduate credit to be recertified. I'm an expert in my field. I make as great an impact on American society as a lawyer does.

    Yet it's silly of me to think teachers should earn as much a lawyers.

    Of course!
