Thats because they can make more money as a pro athlete.
Are pro athletes overpaid? Some make a shitload of money for sure, but how much revenue is generated for their employer/organization/team in comparison to their salary? Pro sports is huge business...governement services aren't. Not that I don't think teachers, cops, firefighters, etc should be better compinsated but you need to realize the business side of things.
Didn't Florida recently set something up where teachers pay/raises are based on test scores?
