How to reward teachers in special schools? (letter)


by Chris Backstrom

News Weekly, October 13, 2007

Sir,

I refer to the article, "How much should we pay teachers who don't deliver?", by Mark Lopez (News Weekly, September 29, 2007). Dr Lopez makes the point that some teachers are not doing a good job, and that these teachers are paid the same as good teachers are.

I was hoping to read an article that addressed the difficulty of rating teachers who work with students who are not bright and enthusiastic treasures whose parents insist on private tuition.

How does one compare the performance of teachers in special schools with teachers at Brisbane Grammar School?

Some of the most wonderful teachers are those who encourage apathetic and recalcitrant students to stay in school and complete vocational training. How are these teachers to be rewarded?

The article misses important points of the debate.

Chris Backstrom,
