Presidential Advice

Renee Moore also has some advice for the next president: Increase respect for teachers and "change the compensation system". She writes:

One way to attract and keep effective teachers in high needs schools is a well-designed performance pay plan that recognizes and rewards the kind of teaching we know works with our most challenging students in our most demanding schools. Imagine a pay system that is designed to encourage and proliferate quality teaching in every classroom, not one that simply rewards people for showing up.
