    In every school in the country, even the worst by any objective measure, there are teachers educating students to a high level. It may only be in one class out of ten, but they are there.

    It stands to reason, then, if we really want to improve education for all students, that we empower teachers, with paid time and resources, to share their techniques and knowledge with each other.

    We do not even have to take any extraordinary measures to find these exceptional teachers, simply give all teachers the time to collaborate with each other, and the leaders will emerge naturally. Who, after all, knows what good teaching really looks like than another teacher?
