Remember this the next time Kentucky’s teachers union has a fit about a merit pay proposal for teachers.
From The Washington Times:
“We have not seen any hard evidence yet that (merit pay) improves achievement,” said Daniel Kaufman, a spokesman for the Maryland State Teachers Association.
While educrats are notoriously difficult to convince that paying more effective teachers more money encourages them to keep up the good work, they cling hard to the idea that paying bad teachers based on seniority works just great. And they do that with no evidence at all to back up their beliefs.
