I believe that there are no bad students in schools. All students could potentially excel in most subjects if they were taught well how to do it. Thus, I think that teachers should be encouraged financially to develop every student to his/her potential. By brining in this innovation to the education system we can achieve higher overall students` performance and potentially higher wages for teachers.
If teachers were payed accordingly with the progress of their students, they would tend to be more interested in the actual results of their labour. It would be the same way as bonuses system in regular businesses where is a direct correlation between the amount an employee earns and level of his current performance. For example, it could work the way when every teacher will be payed a flat amount, regardless of the level grades which his student managed to accompish, and then add to it an extra primium for every "A" mark earned by one of the students in his class. I think that in this case we would witness a significant improvement of average marks in schools.
Another argument in favour of this decision is that most teacher earns less money than they really should. Furthermore, it seams unfair to me that all teachers earns approximately equal salaries. For instance, let us comare two kinds of teachers. First one is a really talanted teacher who make the tru difference in his students lives, while the other just makes his living by teaching without any real interests in his students` performance level.
To sumarise, I think that paying teachers salaries in accordance with their students` grades is an excellent idea which should have been implimented long before.
