“Now How Do I Improve The SECOND Teacher?”

14 08 2007


From Mike Antonucci:



Teacher Quality Enhanced by Hiring More Teachers?

Washington Post reporter Michael Alison Chandler suggests a significant amount of the No Child Left Behind Act’s professional development funding isn’t being spent wisely or well. Chandler cites U.S. Department of Education statistics that reveal about half of the federal teacher quality money was used to hire teachers to reduce class size.


So, I have a teacher, and I want to improve his/her quality. The federal government gives me money, and I hire another teacher. Eh, OK.

Now how do I improve the second teacher?
