Amazon attempts to pay each employee as little as possible on a per-employee basis. The job description only defines what the upper range of the pay will be but NOT the lower end. Experience, demand shifts in the labor market, education, internal connections at the company, and a bazillion other influences exist to determine pay. I'd suggest that there is a wide pay gap between men doing the same job too, and that we are getting a heavily curated view of what's happening. By illustrating the problem the way the article does it is like shooting a piece of paper and drawing the target around it and then claiming LOOK AT THE PROBLEM. It isn't a problem that has a solution in a market where salary can be negotiated.
Unfortunately, with school crisis situations, it's about mitigating loss.
The police largely prevent crime only by accidentally being in the right place at the right time or by use of inside information. Otherwise all police work is about filing reports and mitigating loss. The fact that it's an incident at a school isn't relevant.
I'll go so far as to say that 95% of people are probably biologically capable of going to college.
With all due respect you're about 70% too high. If you honestly believe that all we need to do is "straighten out" our education problems by fixing only the educators you will be very disappointed by the results.
Australia and Europe both got lower crime rates.
You're a little bit ill informed my friend.
