Denver teacher GroovyGrrl offers up a quiz on her most recent pay hike. She then reflects on a longstanding justification for why educators are paid what they are paid:

It infuriates me when I'm told, in not so many words, that because my job is so fulfulling, that it makes up for a lack of salary. Excuse me? When did my employer become my parent?
