The Case for $320,000 Kindergarten Teachers

I had to post this (and not only because I’d like that paycheck), but more importantly, the article mentions that the fade-out-effect is “based mainly on test scores, not a broader set of measures.”

Whether it’s administration, teacher, or student performance,  or even government incentives and funding, there need to be a variety of metrics.

Even though this study has yet to be peer reviewed, I am confident that the year you have with your students matters a lot!
