On Eduwonk, Rick Hanushek kicks off a debate with Diane Ravitch over the importance of weeding out harmful teachers. “The future of our schools depends heavily on dealing with the small number of teachers who simply should not be in the classroom,” Hanushek argues. Hanushek’s argument draws on several articles he has written for Ed Next over the past few years, including “Valuing Teachers,” “Teaching Math to the Talented,” and “An Effective Teacher in Every Classroom.”
