I wish it were easier to find the guidebook for teachers about D.C.s new “Impact Plus” pay-for-performance initiative. That’s because while there will be the predictable hysterics, the booklet makes clear what a groundbreaking initiative this is in terms of structure and the amounts teachers can earn.

Also, on the pay-for-performance issue, keep an eye out next week for an evaluation of the initiative in Nashville.

Update: More 411 on the initiative up now and the actual guidebook (pdf).
