Why do people say that teachers aren't paid fairly?

My local newspaper publishes the salaries of all town employees, including teachers and other education staff. Many of the teachers listed make between 65-90k per year. This doesn't seem "underpaid" to me, especially given two months off in the summer plus vacations at Christmas, etc. Yes, their job is tough and valuable -- and contending with sometimes ungrateful kids must be hard -- but people get paid about this in corporate jobs to contend with ungrateful adults!! Can someone explain the whole "teachers are underpaid" myth to me, please?
