Hands down. I'm going to be making 50k-70k more per year with just a teaching job than I make now. And my whole college education (with two years community college, and at state schools) is going to cost me less than 100k.
And I would imagine that the pay bump makes it far more worth it, not even including the value of the opportunity to have a job in a subject you're actually interested in. Because in my opinion that's the really important part. It's my understanding most people don't particularly want to be slinging pizzas, flipping burgers, or sweeping movie theaters for the entirety of their lives.
