An Opportunity Culture "for All": Making Teaching a Highly Paid, High-Impact Profession. Summary
Hassel, Emily Ayscue; Hassel, Bryan C.
Public Impact
In this summary, authors and co-directors of "Public Impact," Emily Ayscue Hassel and Bryan C. Hassel, state that, in most locations, the relationship between organized teachers and reformers remains at best a tenuous truce and at worst a pitched battle. None are really getting what they want. Teachers are no closer to achieving the respect and substantial, sustainable rewards for their contributions that they deserve, and student achievement has barely budged. The authors suggest a way out, if leaders nationwide commit to excellent teaching for all students. Achieving this will require new school models that extend excellent teachers' reach so everyone can develop toward excellence and earn far more, sustainably. To achieve this vision, governors and state legislatures must commit to excellence for all students and far higher, sustainable pay for teachers. States must overhaul the myriad policies that cap teachers' pay far below their worth and cap the number of students for whom great teachers may take responsibility.
