Do you think that teachers should be paid according to how much their students learn?
Only if parents and the students themselves are held accountable. There are many variables that are out of a teacher's control. Remember, "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't force the horse to drink." The same concept applies to students and learning. When the powers that be understand this, then maybe we can move coward in improving our education system.
When the education system started in the UK, the system of payment by results was used, it didn't work and was soon abandoned.
No because there are cases where the teacher does everything right, but the child either refuses or is unable to learn. Teachers have enough on their backs already.
Definitely not because some students just don't want to learn and are actually quite disruptive and demanding of the teacher's time. A teacher should not be penalised for this.
Absolutely not; however, there needs to be accountability if the teacher is not instructing in a multimodal manner (i.e. teaching both visually and auditorally and sometimes in a tactile manner). There should be some significant consequences for instructors if and only if the instructors have thoroughly completed training in how to present their curricula effectively and be held accountable.
I have been a teacher for over a decade and then a school psychologist; my observations have discerned that this is the primary issue. I would also demand that administration support their instructors by requiring weekly progress reports that are signed by parent(s) on the weekend and promptly returned Monday (I did say weekly). This elliminates many significant issues that interfere with teaching & learning.
As others have mentioned, there are many factors entirely outside the school environment that effect a student's receptiveness when they are in school. Is their home life stable? Do their parents make sure they get enough sleep? Do they have a quiet place to study? What messages do they get from their parents about the importance of education (where I live many are intimidated by their children getting more education than they had)? I would love to see parents held more accountable for their children's success in school.
Genetics, of course, enters into it. If teachers are paid based on the success of their students (similar to a sales commission), no one is going to want to teach special ed, where progress is often a struggle, and everyone is going to want to teach bright students with ideal home lives. It's not good for students (reinforces looking with ill-favor on slower students who could impact one's financial status) and why should a teacher be financially punished for working with more problematic, special ed students?
