$125,000-a-Year Teachers

I read an interesting article in the New York Times about an experimental charter school being set up where they have hired eight exceptional teachers and will pay them $125,000 a year.

The school is looking to prove the theory that excellent teachers are what make the difference in education, not class size or revolutionary technology.

I am interested to see how this turns out. It's a shame that one of the most important jobs in our society is also one of the most under-valued.
