A Michigan Superintendent is wanting to raise the average teacher salary to $100,000+. The average pay for area teachers is already way above the national average at $60,000. So the question is, how much is too much? The Superintendent believes raising teacher pay will attract better quality educators. I love and respect teachers but $100,00 really? That number seems a little high considering police officers, firefighters and military make much less!!! Individuals in the military who fight overseas, leaving their families behind for months on end, make on average $33,000!
What do you think, how much is too much?
