Subject: RE: Teachers: Should you be paid based on performance?
It would work like this - the Board of Education says, for example, we want math scores for our 3rd graders to rise 5% within the next 5 years.
So that job is given to the principal to get 'er done. If he fails, he's out, and they get to bring in someone new to try.
What is so difficult to grasp about this?[/quote]
But next year's third graders are (hopefully) not the same group of kids as last year's. Anybody who has been in a classroom knows that there are times when a district is blessed with a good group one year, only to be cursed with the worst performers a year later.
