As Ontario girds for another school year of teacher discontent, the usual litany of union complaints is already piling up — $3.2 billion worth, according to media reports. Amid the well-worn gripes over salary, benefits and class sizes in particular, the elephant in the classroom remains unaddressed: the shockingly high salaries paid to teachers in the province. For all the complaints over class size, funding for equipment and a lack of education assistants, teachers seem blithely content to ignore the role their generous salaries play in those problems.
