For every four teachers we currently pay $45K to, we could cut the lowest performing one and split that freed up paycheck among the other 3, with $5K left over to fund other state needs.
There are other excellent ideas for education reform. But this is a key objective which needs to be supported.
We congratulate Rep. Calvey for his initiative to unshackle the best teachers in the state, so teachers get the support they need while students benefit from their exceptional skills in educating.
Update: If they can guide be paid more as a result of cutting the administrative bloat, the state's schools can live within their means while paying good teachers more while they guide students to success.
We need to reward them, unbind them, and watch our next generation prosper from good education.
