    Hmm...don't believe I have ever heard anyone say teachers should take a 20% cut.
    I have heard it said that bad teachers should be fired.
    I have heard that teachers pay should be based on performance.

    Boopsters, there are good teachers and there are bad teachers. I mean, really bad teachers.

    There is no mechanism in place to identify good from bad. And if there was, there is no effective mechanism in place to expeditiously terminate the bad teachers. It's a thing called tenure.

    The education system in America is fraught with nepotism, favoritism, cronyism, and downright fraud.

    Fuck the education administrators, faculty, and school boards. Self-serving bastards.

    Mr H and Sherry, while that is true, it actually has nothing to do with the point of the thread.

    In some states, things are changing. Colleges are teaching Praxis which is a tool to evaluate new and experienced teachers on their performance. They are observed twice and a detailed report is made on the actions, the students reactions to the teacher and the atmosphere in the classroom. Even dialogue is written down.

    This is scored and the teacher's performance is graded to determine if they are an effective teacher and a continuing contract is appropriate. It is may be used for due process in a dismissal of the teacher.

    I was a consultant and mentor for first year teachers and used a tool very similar to this for evaluations.

    HOwever, your statements about nepotism, cronysim and downright fraud is also true. I was also a Union Rep and saw this first hand.

    It appears to be a growing mental defect on the left... making hysterical shit up and then getting hysterical about it. Weird.
