Quality teachers boost academic performance and student happiness and well-being

What exactly makes a good teacher? While experts agree that experience, qualifications and education certainly contribute, a new study out of the London School of Economics reveals that job satisfaction and teaching methods matter much more. Moreover, good teachers not only help children succeed academically, but the same study indicates that students taught by the teachers in the top 10 percent showed 20 percent improvement in happiness and emotional well-being.

The study, which tracked 10,000 children in the Bristol, UK area from birth until 21-years-old, also revealed that the physical school and classroom environment also contributes to improved well-being, although not as much as the quality of educators.
