  •  Heh, the work doesn't increase exponentially (0+ / 0-)

    Teaching two kids is not more than twice as hard as teaching one kid.

    And if you do away with an hourly rate and replace it with a rate per child, the actual amount made by teachers will be relatively unchanged. The market drives the prices being paid to teachers. If teachers really earned this much, I'd want to be a teacher. Everyone would want to be a teacher, and collectively, we would bid down the wage rate.

    Try looking at things another way.
