Fareed Zakaria and Bill Gates Agrees that Great Teachers make the biggest difference!

It is tragic to hear of studies that put the US at #31 in science compared to other countries around the world. I was stunned to hear that in South Korea they had to pass laws to keep students from studying too much. In Finland, teachers are recruited from the top 10% of their classes and are paid and hold same respect as doctors and lawyers. We do need to focus on great teachers as Bill Gates and Fareed Zakaria and countless others agree on one basic solution to start the Educational reform - Great Teachers! We also need to focus on making learning fun and not a chore. Don't miss "Fixing Education" on CNN GPS this Sunday.
