what? don't compare teachers and pro atheletes

nurses and teachers don't make "peanuts"

and only VERY FEW football players get paid ANYTHING to play, and it is because people choose to pay to watch them play. how is that hard to understand. there are educators that get paid a lot of money just to give a single speech.

if you really think teachers should get paid more, please tell me where that money should come from. anybody going in to teaching knows about how much they get paid, and what their hours are like and what kind of job security they will have. not many surprises. going for a pro athelete career is NOT easy and full of risks. i'm tired of people making those kind of comparisons. if you really want to become educated you're going to have to do most of the work yourself and everybody today has access to the tools using either the library or internet.
