  • Is the TET exam for teachers a must?

    While there have to be some basic educational requirements, we are currently lacking enough teachers, and the way to get better teachers is to improve compensation and provide adequate support for current, new and prospective teachers. The TET, or Teachers Eligibility Test, is a must for teachers because this is a good way to judge whether someone has the skills needed to be a teacher. No, Teachers Need to Be Selected Based on Performance Not Test Scores Adding yet another exam and another hurdle to becoming a teacher is not the answer to education system problems.

  • Merit pay for teachers: Is merit-based pay for teachers a good idea?

    Merit-based pay is a good idea for teachers. Merit-based pay for teachers would revolutionize the effectiveness of schools. Teachers that can't produce the desired results really shouldn't be teaching and this would help to rid the system of such dead weight.

  • Am I too old to get hired as a teacher if I am 40 years old?

    A lot of teachers I know are over 40 and they are the best teachers I have ever had! I've had teachers considerably older than that. My private tutor is above forty, as well as various teachers in my high school and primary.

  • US President can hire Teachers?

    Once again, my question is how (as in the process) can Obama hire teachers?doesn't literally hire teachers, but he can provide funding for teachers through the Department of Education. I was watching the US Presidential debate when Obama claimed that he is going to hire more teachers if he is re-elected. I thought schools were controlled by the states (and the school districts in them), so the schools hire the teachers.
