Sharing rewards with teachers

In the past, resistance from public school administrators and public teachers has slowed or thwarted the progress of entrepreneurial schools.  Openworld is exploring "success-sharing" frameworks for public teachers to access microscholarship/ microvoucher opportunities for professional development (these can be funded through private or public sector-provided land grants).  Another success-sharing reform can be to introduce Singapore-style "flexiwage" annual bonuses for all public sector employees, indexed to the higher rates of economic growth that result from delivering market-sensitive education and other improvements in the business climate.
