A better place because you would wake up from your stupor and start paying teachers living wages
In Colorado, the wages are average for teaching, but the annual increments are COLA and experience and education acquired, so movement through the scale is fairly rapid.
The real treat is that a teacher can retire after 30 years at 3/4ths of the highest pay grade. That, my friend, is called a "defined benefit" retirement plan, something that is almost unheard of in the private sector anymore. And there is no employee contribution to the plan.
A fair evaluation of teacher pay must include the retirement benefit.
