In light of those shocking international test scores released the other day, the ones showing the U. S. badly trailing China, Japan, and so many others, I just have one question:
How many teachers in Singapore or Japan or Latvia do you think draw $100,000 a year to sit in a room all day with a broken computer and do absolutely nothing for students–teach no lessons, grade no papers, contact no parents? Would you like to meet some American teachers who spend years twiddling their thumbs while raking in a hundred grand? Here you go.
Gnash your teeth while wondering how we’re going to compete in the world that’s rapidly coming.
