    Athletes and celebrities are paid more because large groups of people are willing to pay to either see them peform or to just plain see them...period. I had to hold a gun on my kids to make them go to school. (Not really, I just had to threaten them with bodily harm and other mayhem to make them go to school). How many of you would pay to see your teacher when you were in school ? Not many? Did not think so.

    Think about it. Floor seats for the NBA cost more than 1 hour of tuition expense.

    Supply and demand win again.

    Because life is a bitch, and fucked-up people always get the longer end of the stick.

    Anyone is paid as much as the market dictates.
    If there wasn't such a calling and money to be made in sports and acting - they'd be paid less.
    Until we shift the importance we place on things - it will never change.
    And do you really want a teacher's job to be financially lucrative? To have a bunch of so-so's there just because the money is good and not that they have a vocation for it? Pay them like a star athlete and that is what you'd get.
