Document Number: 10930An Opportunity Culture for All: Making Teaching a Highly Paid, High-Impact Profession - The bad news: Between 1970 and 2010, per pupil spending went up almost 150%, but only 11 percent went to teachers. Teacher salaries and student outcomes stagnated. There's a better way, the authors argue. Junk the one-teacher-one-classroom model. Create teaching teams led by one excellent teacher so more kids get exposed. Use digital instruction and paraprofessionals to save money and spend that money on better teacher pay. Be more selective about which teachers enter, which teachers stay. (Emily Ayscue Hassel and Bryan C. Hassel, Public Impact, September 2013)...
