Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? To improve the quality of education, universities should spend more money on salaries for university professors. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

It is crystal clear that each country's power is determined by its educational system. Personally, I believe that the more money injected into a system, the more system expands. I feel this way for two reasons which I will explore in the following essay. To begin with, one of the ways to encourage people to do a job better is by increasing the wage of that position. These days in modern societies, governments increase the salaries of doctors to improve the healthcare system of the country. As a result of increasing salaries, competition is created among society's people to be a doctor in order to earn that wage. This management method is called the hidden hand of economics, and many countries determine their emphasis by increasing the budget of organizations. For instance, in my country, when the government increased the salary of doctors, the quality of medical sciences and hospital healthcare services all over the country grew. Secondly, if universities pay less money to the professors, then they tend to do extra work besides their teaching job. As a result, they have less time to prepare for their courses, and also they have less time to conduct research in their field. In this situation, if government confines them to do fewer jobs, so the number of applicants for teaching in universities will tremendously decrease. For example, In Iran, because the salary of professors is less, most educated people tend to work in private companies instead of being a professor in universities, and finally, it leads to poor quality of the educational system. In conclusion, I strongly believe that universities should pay as much as possible to professors. This is because by doing this they can encourage people to be professors and a constructive competition will be created, and professors spend their time enhancing the quality of teaching and carrying out more research instead of doing extra jobs besides their main job.
