45. not so much
the bad teachers as the fact that there is no INCENTIVE for being a good teacher vs. a mediocre one. as is the case in my job, fwiw. but at least in my job, there is some incentive if you are applying for specialized unit, to point to your record of achievement. with teachers, when pay is based solely on time served and (in many cases mediocre) degrees, there is no incentive to perform.

and then there is the fact that public schools are amazingly administration heavy, with a much greater %age of school funds paid towards administrators and administrating than teaching vs. most private schools.
