the average teaching salary is ~33k where the average nba player salary is ~5m. do you see the glaring discrepancy? are professional sports more valuable to western society than education?

There’s hundreds of times more teachers than NBA players, each of whom will teach to maybe 100-200 kids in a year, whereas an NBA team will entertain millions of people a year

More people pay more money to watch basketball like that’s not a valid comparison

my whole point, while an extreme comparison, is the fact that we overpay entertainers while vital educators get laughable wages. i could touch on any professional sports league and the players would still have average salaries in the millions. the same points can be applied to anyone in the entertainment industry but it doesn’t detract from the fact that education is marginalized, even just by the average salary. what kind of incentive, other than the passion to educate, do educators have to teach? why are educators really only taken seriously at a professor/doctorate level??

i feels like I’ve been pressed about this since middle school but teachers are so underpaid it’s ridiculous
