I think sometimes we let teachers get away with too much, though. I had a teacher who was an abomination to the profession (unable to explain even the simplest things, utterly senile, etc.), but because teachers are so hard to fire, they couldn't do anything about it. So we had the option to cheat on the tests or fail Chemistry. I failed. Good teachers are wonderful, but such a huge percentage of teachers are terrible that I will not send my kids to public school. I`d agree with a pay raise for teachers if they`d allow a quality control check every now and then.
