How to Support Teachers

Screen shot 2011-05-02 at 9.39.49 AM

Below is an infographic illustrating what teachers feel is most important toward improving instruction. (Click on the image for a closer look.) Its data is telling to be sure. At a minimum it can serve to illustrate the gap between merit pay proponents and educators themselves.

Perhaps we should look at this graph and wonder: What do teachers want? What do they see as their most pertinent needs? What resources do we have to address those needs? Is merit pay actually going to make a difference when so few teachers see merit in it?

Is such a gap a recipe for success or a prescription for failure?
