18. Indeed

My first thought was the pay and mission are disconnected thus the idea would burn out our good teachers.

Teaching is a royal pain for this reason, we don't sort the kids. So a class of thirty will have a ratio something like this.
For 10 kids the class moves too fast
for 18 it moves at the right pace
and 2 kids read once and know forever and those are bored no matter what you do. These are the kids who bring novels to class.
It one tough job to keep all these types in synch.

My hats off to you.
