The Extending the Reach of Excellent Teachers infographic was compiled using data from Public Impact and details ways to harness the teaching abilities of successful instructors to improve learning in schools.
Created by Column Five Media, the graphic illustrates how important an effective instructor is in ensuring the success of a student. It discusses the reasons why American children are falling behind despite the fact that the country spends more money per capita on education than the majority of the world.
The company suggests hiring the most effective teachers possible and dismissing those who aren't hitting the mark. They suggest group-oriented workshops to teach less qualified teachers the ropes as well as suggesting that students spend a portion of the day on online and technology-based learning. This way, the graph argues, teachers have time to specialize their strategies and personalize the curriculum to meet each student's learning needs.
