126: Teachers - Balanced or Not?

Building on yesterday's ideas, we present this thought-bomb:

FiveThirtyEight had a graph on baseball teams, comparing the abilities of the players with a type of Winning percentage metric:

Teams to the right consisted of a few great players mixed with some average and below-average players - a big spread of abilities.

Teams to the left didn't have any superstars, but they had above-average players.

Which group of faculty would you think would make for a better school? The one with some GREAT teachers and some LOUSY teachers, or the one with only GOOD teachers?

Which school would you rather be enrolled in?
