I recently had an interchange with Mr. Glass regarding his assertion that advanced do not matter in terms of performance. He forwarded me an article from a 'conservative think tank' that had 'research' that teachers having advanced degrees did not impact the performance of students on standardized tests.
I would hope the institution where I obtained my Bachelor and Masters degree would fight this false assertion. What message does it send our students if we say that getting an advanced degree doesn't advance you in your position and doesn't advance you in pay? Why would anyone want to continue in schooling?
I am not saying I want to be paid more. I am comfortable with the amount of money I make. What I do want is respect from the leaders at the state and national level. I have used my Masters degrees in a multitude of ways and some of them may not be on a paper and pencil test...Nothing important ever is.
