The problem with teachers is that they lower the standereds so people pass. I am an early childhood professional (Child care) I could becoem a teacher even though I left school at 15. If teachers knew developmental and educational therories they would know.

Two things: 

1.  In the US, if teachers stand firm on high standards they lose their jobs unless they are tenured.  School boards cave to whiny parents.  Also, schools are punished fiscally for holding students back.  So even if the teachers are tenured, they have to know that they would hurt the whole school for what might be good for one student.  The problem is not (for the most part) teachers.  It is the shitty system in which they are stuck.

2.  Most teachers are aware of educational research.  Most educational research is qualitative crap, so I can't see it would do them much good.
