Marra is a teacher of history and economics and asserts that Providence schools are not the only schools in need of improvement. His focus is on teacher contracts, which need to be modified to foster good teaching and diminish poor performance. He discusses various aspects of teacher contracts such as merit based compensation; tenure; seniority; teacher evaluations; longevity bonuses; sick time; due process; and out-of-classroom work/preparation. An important aspect affecting outcomes is the influence of parents and family culture.
