"The school's creator and first principal, Zeke M. Vanderhoek, contends that high salaries will lure the best teachers. He says he wants to put into practice the conclusion reached by a growing body of research: that teacher quality â€" not star principals, laptop computers or abundant electives â€" is the crucial ingredient for success.
â€œI would much rather put a phenomenal, great teacher in a field with 30 kids and nothing else than take the mediocre teacher and give them half the number of students and give them all the technology in the world," said Mr. Vanderhoek."
