Question: Do teachers make enough money?

Charles Best: Well, just as in the quality of public schools, there is massive disparity and the compensation given to the public school teachers. I think there are still plenty of states were teachers make in the low 20s and then they are other communities especially wealthy communities were salaries can start in the 50s, yeah, I mean certainly I think we could put our money where our mouth is as far as showing teachers that they play this pivotal role in our country and where we find that money is good your guess as mine.
