To the Editor:

Regarding the article "Transferring Top Teachers Has Benefits" (Nov. 13, 2013), I can give you a hint why there were no gains in middle school: A successful middle school is highly collaborative, and this will not happen overnight. Collaboration takes time, even for highly successful teachers, but it is what works in a middle school environment.
