Sun. 08/30 11a: Research shows that good teaching makes a big difference in how much kids learn. But the United States lacks an effective system for training new teachers or helping them get better once they’re on the job.

We meet researchers and visit U.S. schools that are taking a page from Japan and rethinking the way they approach the idea of teacher improvement.
