Letter – Real issue is proper value

The real issue is how to get proper value for whatever the pay level is

Real issue is proper value

The real issue is how to get proper value for whatever the pay level is. I don’t see how that is possible in a near-monopoly system (monopoly union and taxpayer-funded school system that uses government force to undercut private schools), because there is not a really strong incentive to perform well. Students are getting what people voted for, whether foreseen or not, and teachers are getting what they exercised their union member vote for. When will they wake up to reality?
