I don't know many teachers who live in complete poverty. I'm sorry but getting paid $40k a year at the low end of the bell curve to work for a total of 9 months out of the year isn't bad. Besides, teaching is a job one should do because of the love for the job and wanting to help people develop and learn. If you want to make money, go be a lawyer, engineer, or businessman. I believe teaching as well as most other public service jobs should be worked by those wanting to do the job, not make lots of money. If you're in a job just because of money then you're likely going to do a crappy job.
Yes, there are lots of lazy teacher, instructors, and professors in our society who care more about a few bucks than our education, development, and future.
Money is a not a good indicator of motivation and quality of work.
