The Pope calls for teachers to be given a pay rise

Let's open up those secret Swiss bank accounts
The Pope has called again for teachers to be better paid and for governments to take more interest in education.

The Pontiff said that educators were "among the worst-paid workers" during a Vatican conference on Christian education.

He concluded that this meant that "the state simply has no interest".

"If it did, things wouldn't go that way," Pope Francis said in comments reported by the Catholic News Service. "The educational alliance is broken. And this is our job, to find new paths."

The issue of teacher pay is clearly a priority for the Pope. He first stated his concerns in March, describing it as an "injustice" that teachers are paid so poorly.  (more...)

Considering how well the Vatican manages its finances....
