1. When all things are considered. No
The question should be... are they paid enough. And the answer to that is no.

2. I don't think so either
Yet, people are treating public employees as though they're rich. The only "public servants" that I know of whom are obscenely wealthy are some school administrators/superintendents raking in hundreds of thousands of dollars. The average teacher is, by no means, wealthy.

3. I really don't for the most part think those admins/supts are worth what they are paid.

4. I tend to agree
Higher than teachers perhaps but not ANYWHERE near the kind of salaries a lot of them are raking in.

5. Wrong question
The right question is, "Why don't private sector employees get paid enough?"
