"Hi, I'm a teacher. I work on commission" - Page 2
A teacher can prepare the lessons, do his or her best to translate those lesson to every students and every possible learning style. They can assign homework, practice questions, hold reviews, and create as many study resources as possible, but at some point the student has to make the effort. They have to study. They have to pay attention. They have to take ownership of their own learning. And, sadly, many students don't do any of that. Now, because of their lack of care or appreciation of learning and school the teachers will be penalized - by cutting or limiting their pay, their livelihood.
I'm sure there is some logic here that vows to help weed out those teachers that aren't doing their jobs - limit the pay of those that don't have a student's best interest in mind. But, I see this being yet another 'solution' that will only cause more problems in the long run.
