Great article with some valuable lessons.
"The second critical decision came in 1979, when reformers required that every
teacher earn a fifth-year master’s degree in theory and practice at one of
eight state universities—at state expense. From then on, teachers were
effectively granted equal status with doctors and lawyers. Applicants began
flooding teaching programs, not because the salaries were so high but because
autonomy and respect made the job attractive."
Via Muse, who wrote: "This is what I learned from Evergreen State College as
well. Competitive forms of learning quickly stall out. Cooperative learning
gets young people so much further."
