There are many suggestions for improving America’s public schools:
More standardized tests.
New academic standards.
Increase charter schools and/or allow kids to attend private schools with public money.
But one reform you hardly ever hear about is this: pay teachers more.
Isn’t that funny?
We’re willing to try almost everything else but that.
Sure, some folks want to tie teachers’ salaries to test scores, but that’s not increasing pay. That’s just doubling down on standardized testing.
Isn’t it shocking that no one is willing to invest more money into the actual act of educating children?
