That breaks the moral.Teachers are meant to teach.

Well, I don't think it should be that straightforward, things can get complicated.

1. How would substitute teacher's salaries be determined? Measuring intelligence gained only in the course of one day is ineffective, since really learning something means it got committed to your long-term memory instead of your short-term memory.

2. What about teachers who teach the slow kids. I personally know that "slow" kids don't...progress as much as other kids, and even if they DO progress, oftentimes people don't realize it. My cousin didn't speak a full sentence until he met my brother, I'm pretty sure he was six or seven. He knew how to speak in full sentences, I guess he just didn't find anybody worth speaking to before he met my brother.

3. Some kids don't test easily, and some kids don't get good grades even though they are actually very bright. This may result from problems at home, problems with other kids, or a simple problem with authority. If it's a problem with authority, it's not the teacher's fault, it's the parent's fault. And if it is a problem with authority, they may be learning the material but purposefully flunking the tests to get at the teacher. Placing the teacher's salary in the children's hands is a dangerous transfer of power, some kids are...vengeful. There are millions of situations which may result in the child holding power over the teacher. With high school kids, a child might hold a crush on his or her teacher, and when the teacher spurns his or her affections, the child, depressed and vengeful might flunk his or her teacher's classes.
