How To Pay Teachers?

It will make a lot of sense if the following issues are addressed before thinking about paying teachers based on student performance.
1. Change the weak teacher education programs. Many colleges/schools of education are doing a very poor job in training teachers.
2. The criteria to join the teaching profession need to change. Many colleges/universities appear to pick any person who shows up at the door.
3. Salary scales should be based on what you teach. It makes a lot of sense to consider specialization. Other countries and professions use this technique.
4. Schools must stop being business like, where students are simply customers who must feel good by using tricks like social promotion and grade inflation.
