Sting Says Teachers Should Be Paid More

MEXICO CITY -- School teacher-turned-rock star Sting says teacher salaries must be raised to attract society's best minds into classrooms.

Sting spoke to reporters Saturday in Mexico City before a $550-a-ticket concert.

The show is part of a fundraising "Learning for Life" tour that supports education in developing countries.

Sting, the former leader of the British rock band The Police, said: "One of the most important jobs in the planet is to teach children. Our entire future depends on children being educated."
