CTQ On Teacher Pay

This new report from the Center on Teaching Quality is pretty signal and is well worth reading. Substantively it discusses various kinds of pay differentiations (skills, performance, etc…) in a matrix much like what is being tried in, for instance, Denver. But more than that it is politically significant because another one of the old-line groups is now on board with modernizing teacher compensation and incorporating performance into the mix. Plenty of room to argue the details, sure, but that notion was heretical just a few years ago. Now it’s pretty pedestrian. That’s for the good for students and teachers.

Update: The Bulldog is on the case. Note NEA reax in bottom 1/3 of story. They hate it. But word on the edustreet is that such sentiment is hardly unanimous inside the organization.
