The problem of better academic training for teachers is needed. If the material which is taught to potential educators is not matching other nations, there need to be a Educational Watch in this area to make sure training given is adequate, so educators can be better prepared to be a productive teachers.
I do agree with introducing a new approach for recruiting teachers. The ideal of choosing from the top third is a start. The attitude of how seriously the profession means to an individual should also be a governing factor for recruiting teachers.
The rewarding of a teacher for excellency is another area that I agree with Mr. Klein. Thirty years of being an educators and you are not an effective teacher, should not put a teacher in line for any reward
Conclusion-The thought of the teaching profession moving into strict requirements for acceptance into the field would greatly give this area a better reputation. The supplying of study material inline with other nations would also help improve our education system. These suggestions by Mr. Klein are all positive suggestions for improving our education system.
