The money will be used to study the type of genetics that would produce teachers capable of eliminating the achievement gap.
"This is the cutting area of research. There is no more important issue the world faces than finding quality teachers and that will never happen without some genetic intervention," said a spokesperson.
Genetic manipulation of pre-determined embryos is expected to produce teachers who will:
- work 14 hour days without interruption
- teach class sizes of 40 and up without complaining
- never join a union
All candidates will be sterilized to assure they never have their own children who might interfere with the primary mission- to create millions of super human quality teachers.
