Actually some school districts are. The Sioux Falls School districts is going to pay more to experienced teachers who want to come work for them, because they see a need for experienced teachers in the classroom.
When people get talking about teacher pay and compare it to doctors and lawyers, I think about a story I read a few years ago about an Iowa lawyer who said he was no longer going to take court appointed cases as they only paid $95/hr and his regular hour pay was close to twice that. Now most don't complain when the lawyer gives them the bill where they charged you for every little contact but they sure complain when a teacher gets a 3-5% raise.
