In this week's livestream, I addressed three common myths about teachers (from "50 Myths and Lies that Threaten America's Public Schools").
1) Myth #10: Teachers are well paid
2) Myth #11: Merit pay is a good way to increase the performance of teachers
3) Myth #14: subject-matter knowledge is the most important asset a teacher can possess
If you have any more questions/comments, please continue to post those as a response to this video. We still need to address these myths to promote change and respect for teachers.
Thanks for watching!
