Teachers And Test Scores

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 6:46 am

Speaking of test scores – has anyone looked lately at the SAT scores of young people going into teacher training programs?  Of all professions, teaching draws the weakest candidates.  And why is that?  It could have to do with the fact that average teacher annual salaries are $52,000.  Not a huge incentive for bright young people.  Teaching is hard work both during the day when working with children and at home at night correcting papers and writing lesson plans.  Diane Ravitch has some things to say in this article.
