I just thought of this. If you wanna fix public schools, or at least improve them dramatically AND increase the pay of teachers, just follow these simple three rules:
- Find some way to identify the bottom 10% of teachers.
- Fire them.
- Do this every year.
If you object to this, you are more interested in keeping shitty teachers in jobs than you are seriously worried about kids getting a good education.
Education should not be a “Make Work Pay” program.
