Interesting New York Times Article

Interesting article about whether training teachers or paying them more is the best way to go.

Some interesting points about MKT (Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching) – evidently teachers who score higher on this knowledge achieve better results [see Deborah Ball]. Evidently, no closet to knowing how to ‘teach’ this knowledge though, so just another measure to see whether the teachers you already have are able to do their jobs effectively.
