This material relates to Dr. Marder's presentation at the 2011 PhysTEC Conference in which he considered two competing explanations for the performance of US schools. One explanation is that there are many teachers of low quality, and schools can most effectively be improved by replacing them with superior teachers. The other explanation is that school performance is very sensitive to levels of poverty, and teacher quality is a secondary effect. Data behind each of these explanations is examined, and data for the effectiveness of charter schools is also examined.
