http://www.brandonsun.com/opinion/columns/analysis-why-are-manitobas-teachers-so-highly-paid-326261661.html?thx=y After reading this article it makes me wonder if we are getting a good bang for our buck. Quoted from the Sun article- Manitoba has relatively well compensated teachers, so it appears to have negotiating room to limit the growth of teacher compensation relative to other occupations, without harming the attractiveness of the profession in the province. Saskatchewan and other provinces pay their teachers relatively less, but deliver equal or better student performance results. Noted is wages and pensions are lower in other provinces. It boils down to the bargaining of the school board. Is this system of negotiations truly working for students and the taxpayers? If the board was able to negotiate lower wages and pensions would that not open the door to either lower operating budgets, or increased aids to help students in need? We are one of the highest paid provinces yet our scores are in the toilet.
