Most schools are currently built on the premise that all teachers are perfectly effective. Every single teacher has the same responsibility and the same duties. Every single teacher-from the most competent to the least competent each day strives, within the four walls of his or her own classroom, to engage students and to convey material to them. Every day, in every class period, our schools subject twenty or thirty young people to the strengths and weaknesses of an individual teacher.
