Peanuts pay for teachers

16 August 2016

Dear Editor 

The fact is, our country does not have top-quality teachers because teaching (due to ugly paychecks) is an undesirable profession. If we raise the salary, teaching will become an attractive profession and once again attract talented individuals to become teachers and thus make our country better educated. 

Teaching, in my opinion, is one of the most important jobs to have in this world. Honestly how can we accomplish what we have today without teachers?

I don’t understand why a celebrity like Kim K gets paid millions to look pretty but a teacher only gets paid “peanuts.” 

How do celebrities benefit society more than teachers by getting more $$? 

And just because the rest of the world pay their teachers lousy salaries doesn’t mean Samoa should too.
