If you want better qualified math and science teachers, you have to pay them more.That’s was the recent message from state Superintendent Mike Flanagan, who heads up the Michigan Department of Education (MDE). However, according to Flanagan, most scientists and mathematicians don’t consider teaching in public schools to be a viable career option.

‘We need to be moving all teachers to that salary level ($100,000) to continue getting the best and brightest people educating our students,’ Flanagan said. ‘It’s all about talent.’ Average teacher salaries vary by tens of thousands of dollars across the state. No district’s average salary hit $100,000 in 2010-11.

Do you agree with the superintendent?
