The annual exponentially increasing money went infrastructure and pension blackholes. Not results.|
Lo & Behold, when money isn't tied to results you get failure. Imagine that.
I'm not talking about graduation rates or test scores either. Job placement and advance degree application is what teachers should be paid on.
Edit: I have a theory on why the scores are so bad this year. I'm not sure about the Florida system, but in Oregon the test are extremely lax, and they even allow retakes if you fail. So most kids halfass many attempts until they get over 60% by sheer luck or apathy of the graders.
Cutout retakes, raise the minimum passing standard and see how bad our system REALLY is.
