How to Become and Remain a Transformational Teacher
The return on investment in American education to individuals and to
society at large has been growing in both relative and absolute terms
since 1980.It is well known that, statistically, people who are well-educated
earn substantially more, pay more in taxes, are less likely to be
unemployed, live longer, are healthier, and are more likely to vote.Yet, in spite of that, our society is increasing spending on locking
people up faster than it is on educating them. Our investments in
punishing people for their failures are outpacing our investments in
ensuring their success.
