Exactly right. If it was only about pay & benefits then parochial schools would never be able to find staff to teach. I also suspect that for a lot of teachers having a classroom full of kids who want to learn is a rush and real motivator for what they do. In contrast, having a room full of sullen, disrespectful kids who don't want to learn and whose parents are either of the insane helicopter variety or don't give a damn (not sure which is worse) has to be a real downer.

As an aside, a friend of mine just retired from teaching with a medical disability that he got trying to breakup a fight between two high school students. He took a nasty blow to the head. The reaction of the administration and the parent (only one per child) of each kid was illuminating to say the least.
