Obama Unveils New Education Plan
According to THIS post, Democratic Presidential hopeful, Barak Obama unveiled what would be his educational policy. He says that he would...
--not abolish the No Child Left Behind Act
-- Get rid of standardized assessments of the NCLB Act in favor of more complex assessments.
--consider funding for schools that experiment with longer school days and years.
--Experiment with merit based pay for teachers.
Only Richardson said he would abolish the NCLB act, of all the democratic candidates
I'm all for the experimenting and better assessment materials...but merit pay for teachers??
