"Teachers need to make the money that they need to make," McGill said, according to the Times-Journal. "If you double a teacher's pay scale, you'll attract people who aren't called to teach ... and these teachers that are called to teach, regardless of the pay scale, they would teach. It's just in them to do. It's the ability that God give 'em."

QUOTES TO GET SMACKED FOR:
#5 ARGUING AGAINST A TEACHER'S RAISE BECAUSE OF COMPLETELY BOGUS REASONS
At a prayer breakfast this week in Fort Payne, Alabama, state Sen. Shadrack McGill came out against increasing teachers' pay. I'm sorry, the idea that anyone would take a teachers job cause the pay is great is completely ass-backward. Why don't they just give teacher's a damned living wage. I know it's a shame you can't outsource the education of our children. Perhaps now with iPads becoming the norm, maybe we can start having home schooling. So no public education would be necessary. No teachers. No Department of Education. Sounds like a plan, doesn't it Republicans.
Just one man's opinion
