On average, students with a teacher in the top quartile of the talent pool achieve at levels corresponding to an additional two or three months of instruction per year, compared with peers who have a teacher in the bottom quartile.The report argues, as many have before, that public policies should direct the nation’s best teachers to the nation’s neediest schools. In reviewing what’s happening now, the report finds that high-poverty students see a disproportionate share of teachers who are less well-qualified, have had less success, and who have been around the teaching carousel more. The report ends by questioning the wholly grail of tenure and suggests that tenure be awarded more selectively to only the highest-performing teachers. Makes sense to me.
