I live near a school district which is possibly the highest paying one in the country, although definitely one of them. The pay is on par with what a professor can expect at a university, and yet, this year, the teachers planned to strike for more benefits (which was averted since the district caved into their demands).

I get the point, but basketball, and all pro athletes have skills that only a handful of people in the world have, whereas most could get grants go to school and get a teaching degree, I hate when people say athletes make to much, for all the money they make, the owners still make more.

A good teacher is about more than just a simple degree, just like being a good sportsman is about more than just exercising regularly.

Teachers in the part of the country where I live only make 35k a year. I think they could use a bit more money.

Professional athletes only make money because their fans allow it; if nobody bought jerseys or went to games, they wouldn't be making the millions everybody is complaining about.

Also, I think teachers should be making way more than they do- assuming the quality of the education they provide is superb.

And they're fat as **** .

It makes an interesting point, but was poorly implemented.

This is an alternate universe.
Who is to say that those things would have the same effect as they do in ours.
Made being fat is good for sports in their universe.

I agree with you but you are over generalizing. There are teachers who work damn hard for their students and know their **** . You also forget about the teachers who have a damn Ph.D and decide to teach to help the future.

An argument could also be made that teachers are far more important that N.B.A. players, and I'd support that argument.

I'm sorry but **** teachers, don't get me wrong, I'm not idiot who dropped out of high school and I put all my blame on them. But they get the whole summer vacation off and then the weekends during the winter with plenty of breaks throughout the year. They also find a way to get out of working while getting paid by using a loophole. If they want to get paid more, the union needs to lay off and stop being power hungry.

My mom is a teacher, and while I agree that they should get paid less because of all of their vacation time, I also believe that they should still get paid more than what they are being paid. Because contrary to popular belief, teachers do a lot more than you think they do. (this is not true for all teachers.....)

Athletes are paid a lot because of the large group of people they entertain or affect, and they willingly give up their money to support them.
A teacher's salary is completely unrelated, although I do think their pay should be more subjective to the quality of their teaching.

This might get a lot of negative feedback. but I actually disagree with this post and this whole argument in general. Someone on Facebook posted that it's a shame that professional athletes get paid way more than people in the military. (She posted this because her boyfriend is a marine)

Anyways. I feel that there is nothing wrong if they get paid more than school teachers, police officers, doctors, etc. They get paid that much because they worked their ass off to become extremely talented and physically superb in their field. I would love to meet an NFL player who has ever slacked off and managed to maintain a successful career. However, I know plenty of teachers who do. And frankly, a professional athlete would have to have always trained extremely hard day in and day out, since they were probably in their teens all the way to the point where they finish their career, where a teacher mostly goes to school for 4-5 years, graduates and gets a job.

TL:DR There is nothing wrong with athletes getting paid more than teachers.

Well, I stopped myself before I literally started a ********* about teaching salaries, and I think I just had an epiphany that my immediate reaction to most situations is to support the unpopular opinion.....thank you funnyjunk, for sharing this life moment with me.
