Neither do I. The debate around good vs. bad teachers is a distraction that 
gets us nowhere close to ensuring that all our students get education. The 
real debate should be around empowerment of people who are assisting learners. 
What we found is that teachers, even in crowded schools, were able to find 
their own resources to ensure that their wards acquired basic skills.
Learning happens if we leave teaching to teachers.
