Pay them and they will come

For just a moment there, I thought I’d misread the thing. The article stated something about teachers making $125,000 a year and I had to stop what I was doing because some pals and I have agreed with this approach for years. Same as in most any other field, it’s often the pay scale that attracts a strong, competitive workforce. Pull back on the scale, lose some of the fittest applicants.

So it was only with pure revelation I read the piece in the NYT yesterday [omg it’s 3:30am].
