Under Clinton, public school teachers claim most lucrative profession
WASHINGTON, D.C. – With growing American support for public education, public school teachers are now earning more than ever before. On Friday afternoon, Forbes released its annual list of highest-paid professions, and public school teachers topped the ranking.
With increased pay for teachers, the profession has become more competitive, and public schools have thrived. American children are testing higher than ever and seem to be developing into well-rounded, compassionate citizens.
“Funding for education and the arts has always been our top initiative,” said Secretary of Education Lin-Manuel Miranda, “Paying our teachers six figures seemed reasonable for the hours and training they endure, not to mention the service they provide.”
Rounding out the top five highest paid professions, Forbes listed doctors, lawyers, engineers, and creative writers. When Americans elected President Hillary Clinton by a resounding 3 million votes, it became clear that they prioritize investments into the future of the country.
“The only way to progress and evolve is through education, and that starts with properly compensating our most valuable assets: teachers,” President Clinton said in her inaugural address.
Lin-Manuel Miranda was appointed as Secretary of Education after more than two years of teaching American history on Broadway. A billionaire named Betsy DeVos asked to be considered, but was quickly dropped after it became clear she lacked any experience whatsoever.
