Degrading


Dear Editor,

Baiting Hollow's Catherine Carella-Dean in her critical letter to News Review (June 29) repeats our teachers' union absurd standard: "Teachers hold bachelor's degrees, master's degrees and hundreds of hours of professional development . . . The more education and specialized training one acquires, the more likely it is that he or she will earn higher compensation." This practice degrades teaching. Even if taxpayers hadn't paid for the courses that forced them to pay for the resulting pay raises, the standards collapse. The success and quality of the teacher's work, not the number of his courses, must finally become the standard for salary in an effective school.

Mrs. Carella-Dean likened teachers to attorneys, accountants, pilots, and reregistered nurses. When she chooses her next attorney, accountant, pilot, or nurse she would be wise to consider that rate of his success before the number of his courses.
