Why do students get paid more than the teacher?

I think teachers should get paid more than what they do. If they didn't teach a person how to be a doctor or lawyer, they wouldn't be as good as they are or getting paid what they're getting paid. What do you think about this?

I always maintained that teacher's wages are low and should be raised to reflect their professional status. My friends are always teasing me that I have too much holidays during a scholastic year! MrsRich you have made my day!

I'm glad to know that I made your year ronaldinu! It is true that teachers get a lot of breaks, including an entire summer off and stillg et paid. However, I do believe they need to get paid more than what they are. Thanks for posting.

I definitely believe that teachers should get paid way more than they do. Just like you said, if the teacher does not teach than how will the student ever know how to do anything?
