A Way to Test the “Bad Teacher” Theory

…a reader suggests a simple way to evaluate the oft-repeated assertion that low test scores are caused by bad teachers:

I wonder why the reformers don’t try this experiment: Take the staff of an underperforming school and switch them for a year with the staff in a high performing school. Let’s see if the results are that different.

I say try it for three years. Compare the results in both schools. Good idea.”

A fabulous �idea from Diane Ravitch’s blog -�A Way to Test the “Bad Teacher” Theory.  Would you be willing to do it?
