As a bit of background, I work as a 'freelance' professor in the UK in business and IT subjects. I have also led consulting work reviewing faculty processes so understand the admin side quite well. Here in the UK professors rarely have tenure and are paid a lot less than in the US.
There are a number of key points to consider which are true here and I believe also in the US. Firstly, academic career paths are driven almost entirely by research output - no papers, no job. Teaching is a chore that you have to do if you want to make a living out of research. Until that changes, there will be poor professors. Research is king because that is what drives organizational reputation, and reputation drives fees and prestige. Lecturers who love teaching but have little talent for research are often treated as second class citizens.
Secondly, the economics of professors teaching classes can be very poor (and of questionable pedagogy). Here is one example from Stanford https://tomprof.stanford.edu/posting/160.
