My husband is a teacher of primary school and he and I often debate what it would take to get education back on track (if it ever was). It is difficult to identify the real reasons that education often fails.
I found this article and it stirred some thoughts:
I think that some teacher incentives will help, but know how hard he works. I agree with the premise of this article in that teaching is a calling much like other professions. He believes that much of the blame falls to parents who don't make education a priority in their household. Do you think that incentives for teachers will produce the results we so desperately need, or is the problem beyond the spectrum of pure teacher motivation?
