It might be your "intuition" that teachers have the most influence on regional variations in pupil attainment but please don't base policy on your guesswork. There are already lots of excellent teachers. Have a read of these forums and see what stops them doing a good job. You don't need to attract more good quality teachers into the profession, you need to retain and tempt back those who have left through micromanagement, poor leadership and pointless systems and theories which create paperwork not learning. I'd have a look at how the Pupil Premium is being used before getting excited about your positive impact on education. Bah.
