An 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.

Be more selective about which teachers enter, which teachers stay. (Emily Ayscue Hassel and Bryan C. Hassel, Public Impact, September 2013)...
