    ednotesonline.blogspot.com Ed Notes Online: Shael Channels Leo at HST 101 Event

    accountabletalk.com Accountable Talk: July 2012

    In keeping with current trends, a writer for the Atlantic, who is not an educator, wrote about an idea hatched by a bunch of professors (who teach students who want to be in attendance) to increase teacher performance. In short, the idea is this: Merit pay doesn't work, so let's punish teachers w... Read article
