Teachers: Pay More, Demand More

We at the Evil Black Economist are definite pro-teacher. But we aren't stupid either. Most of all we a pro-value added. Meaning a teacher must deliver in value more than they earn in salary. We are also for a individualized, child specific educational system.

Basically, teacher salary, effort and quality are one of the few things that can be changed in the education system in the medium term.

We believe in paying teachers more and asking them to do more. We are fully in favor of testing and rewarding good test scores. But we are also in favor of teachers as social workers, substitutes parent and life guidance counselors. We favor internet monitoring and 24 hour access along with a reduced paperwork burden.
