Supportive Leadership over Higher Pay: I totally agree!

Supportive leadership is more likely to keep effective teachers in the classroom than higher pay, according to a teacher survey sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation along with Scholastic. Teachers also said they valued "relevant" professional development, safe working conditions and having time to collaborate with other educators. Of the teachers who were surveyed, 59% said that establishing a national curriculum would help improve student achievement.
