Have there been any studies that show a direct correlation between raised teacher pay and increased student performance. In other words, do happier teachers (perhaps with less need for second jobs) make for happier & more productive students?

Standards will become almost immediately outdated as technology advances and things change very quickly. We should instead make logic and thoughtfullness standards instead of current facts.

Please compare and contrast this discussion of No Child Left Behind with its original:

Children are our future.
