TEECHERS MUST HAV THE RITE TO STRYKE ! Expectifying them to be held accountable for their students` grades is asking entirely too much ! Even if Obama DID sign the law that establishes this requirement, this is just plain unfair !
I heard today (missed the location) that since merit pay was out of the question, an up-front payment of $4,000. was given to teachers who were told, “Now, if your students do not improve their grades, you have to pay the money back !” The teachers performed well and the students` grades did too !
The teachers weren`t impressed with the promise of money in the future for improvements (they get raises anyway, regardless of performance, and cannot be fired for any reason), but the fear of having to pay money back was an effective motivator ! Fascinating !
