Better Pay Means Better Teachers

So says the OECD's programme for international student assessment:

• High performing systems allow schools to design curricula and establish assessment policies but don’t necessarily allow competition for students.

• Public and private schools achieve similar results, after taking account of their home backgrounds.(1)
