One thought on “teacher quality column”

  1. This one is generating some interesting dialogue with my Republican (GASP!!!!!), running for office in SF (GASP, GASP!!!!!) boyfriend(?)
    He likes your column.
    And I do too … except I wonder how the principal who just interviewed me for a journalism job would react at bonus time when my students wrote stories that didn’t conform to her demands — MUST NOT SHOW SCHOOL IN NEGATIVE LIGHT!!!!
    I could be the world’s greatest journalism teacher helping my students become solid investigative reporters, but I’d not win one dollar in merit pay, would I?
    Still, I am certainly open to the idea of differentiated pay beyond the ridiculous step system.
