Interesting: For superior teachers, reward excellence | CNN


I found this tidbit from interesting:

According to an analysis by Stanford economist Eric Hanushek, if you replaced the lowest-performing teachers in our country (roughly 5% to 10% of the teaching work force) with just average performing teachers, America’s students as a whole would rise from the bottom of the performance ladder on international tests to a Top 10 ranking. What would this mean for our GDP, by the way? Tens of trillions of dollars.

Anybody know how we can replace the lowest 5-10% of our teachers? Is there anybody willing to take their place? I’d be willing to try (or vote in someone who would try) if this were a viable option.
