I was quite startled when I heard that Bill Gates make the following comments. This is a clear admission that the millions he spent on the promotion of computers and Microsoft products has produced no results.

"To truly support teachers, we have to understand excellent teaching," Gates said. "So for us, the challenge became, let's analyze the teachers whose students are making the biggest gains, identify what they do and figure out how to transfer those skills to others. Amazingly, we found that the field of education had done little work or research in this area."
