Teacher pay

Posted By on Thu, Feb 15, 2007 at 10:36 AM

Thanks to Jake for a link to a blogger who has taken up the task to systematically debunk Jay Greene's contention that teachers are overpaid. (Greene is the $160,000-a-year conservative think tanker who's being underwritten with Walton money at the University of Arkansas to attack teachers unions, promote charter schools, etc.  He wrote recently on the subject of overpaid, slacker teachers for the Wall Street Journal.)

Which reminds us: We heard recently that the "real" school of education at the University of Arkansas has some faculty openings and at least one has been hard to fill on account of the anti-public-school message being propagated, with the Education Department's silent acquiesccence, over at Greene's shop.
