Yeah, because the teachers’ salaries and pensions don’t leave much left over for the schools to spend on the students.

Sensibility is your solution to not pay teachers and pensions? Maybe try and force them to work for free? Maybe generously pay them minimum wage?

Sounds like we will have great teachers in classrooms. We want well educated professional educators but we want to pay them like fry cooks. Makes perfect sense to me.
