The perspective on teacher pay by Congressman Mark Amodei of Nevada is quite interesting. Many teachers here in Alberta are great, but many are also clearly overpaid & their administrative head, the Alberta Teachers Association is clearly spending too much of its wage negotiation wins on salaries & teachers benefits, rather than on students in the classroom. We have two bargaining groups for nurses, the Alberta Nurses Association & the Provincial Nurses of Alberta so why not break up the ATA as its way too powerful &?! This would make teachers more accountable to Alberta students & their families!
"Better teachers should receive compensation for their skills & efforts."
