How to reward teachers for better educational outcomes

Unfortunately, we cannot simply throw money at all of our problems, as we have learned the hard way in the Australian education system. Australia’s school funding surpasses that of many countries ($20,000 on every student every year). Yet, our educational outcomes continue to lag.

We have been spending more money only to get worse outcomes. Why?

This video offers a solution. Instead of merely allocating more funding to struggling schools we should make better use of our most valuable educational resource: teachers.

The best way to bridge the achievement gap is by deploying quality teachers to where they are needed most and then paying them more.

Successful international examples show how strategic deployment of top teachers can lead to remarkable improvements in underperforming schools. It is time we focused on funding effective teachers not merely broadly funding schools.
