When AOL Jobs published the story "Teachers Are Actually Overpaid, Report Says" last week, our in-boxes were flooded with notes from baffled, offended, and irate readers. Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers, summed up these responses in three words: "Are you kidding?"

So AOL Jobs spoke to Weingarten, whose union represents 1.5 million educators, as well as to one of the report's co-authors, Andrew Biggs of the conservative American Enterprise Institute, to address our readers' main complaints.
