    Umm, the incentive for good teachers is that they don’t get fired. They get to keep their job. In what other job do we coddle people so much rather than simply require them to do their job and do it well?

    Sure incentives, bonuses and so on can be an effective part of any employment situation but that’s not the first thing we do or the first thing we require. It’s about time teachers joined the rest of us in the real world and worked under the same conditions and requirements that the rest of us have to follow.

  • US schools will either produce Nobel laureates or multiple choice specialists, but not both.
