"Thoughtful, accessible, and timely. . . . Highly recommended." - Choice
"What a wonderful surprise it was to read this book. Startz, a newcomer to teacher policy, pulls off a feat managed by few veterans of the field. Using layman's terms without compromising a whit on his economist credentials, he lays out a highly persuasive argument for why we need to pay great teachers a lot more money and how it can be done. What Freakonomics did in raising our collective economic literacy, this book does for the economics of schooling." (Kate Walsh, President, National Council on Teacher Quality)
"The clearest and most forceful books in education invariably tend to be ideological statements that at best twist existing evidence on what can improve student outcomes. And that is what makes the contrast with this book so great. Here we have a clear and visionary statement that is completely based on existing research and evidence―evidence that is presented accurately in a lively and well-written book that should be read by everybody who wants to improve our schools." (Eric A. Hanushek, Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution of Stanford University)
