I just read this interesting article over at TechCrunch about education in the US. David Liu, COO of Knewton, thinks we should be treating our teachers like software engineers. In Korea and Japan, teachers are payed well and have higher esteem than in the US. Because of studies that higher-payed teachers increasing performance of students, Liu feels that the US needs to be doing this as well. Tech companies give the best to their employees...high wage, perks, free food, etc. What are your thoughts?
