Rock-star teachers earn $4 million per year?

Amanda Ripley authored an essay that appeared in the U.S. edition of The Wall Street Journal on August 3, 2013. It was adapted from her forthcoming book, “The Smartest Kids in the World: And How They Got That Way,” which was released today by Simon & Schuster. The article received hundreds of comments from readers and other media outlets have piled on the PR bandwagon.

FYI: Kim Ki-hoon (one of the rock star teachers mentioned) has 150,000+ students viewing his lessons every year via the online hagwon Megastudy.
