To clarify, I mean that increasing teacher salaries will almost certainly involve increasing taxes (property, income, whatever) on wealthier people, not cutting salaries for teachers in wealthier public school districts.

How the hell do you propose to "take money away from rich people" to fund schools?

How do you define rich?

Like it or not, until you wave your magic funding wand, public schools get stiffed by voucher programs.

Ok, you answered my question. Now you have to guarantee that these newly raised funds go towards schools.

Good luck. If you get that to work, hold a governor's conference and let them know how it can be done.
