Teachers' Pay

The value of a teacher must be based upon that teacher possessing knowledge and also having the ability to impart that knowledge to students. In a free enterprise system you get what you pay for, therefore high quality teachers in the public school system should be able to earn $200,000 a year. We should forget about student/teacher ratios and start building a cadre of master teachers to improve the quality of education in our nation. ROBERT A. DAHLQUIST Orange
