And it isn't about "getting rich", it's about making the profession attractive to intelligent and capable people.

But, hey, I dunno, maybe it isn't important to try and draw the best people into professions like teacher or police officer. Maybe the people who struggled through crappy colleges and barely scraped by and can't get a job doing anything else are really the ones you want teaching your kids and keeping you safe.
You are assuming I think they shouldn't be paid well. I don't think that at all.. but I don't think the answers are a union raping the city govt for all they have and taking money from other important things like fixing roads and infrastructure.

The issue is mindset. The issue is that we don't pay these teachers what they deserve and shitty teachers slide by because of unions.

They should be paid a fair amount of money no question at all. But Unions aren't going to solve the issue it has to be a total change in how we operate.
