US Ed Secretary Arne Duncan on differential pay

From a post on the Miami Herald blog Naked Politics on Arne Duncan’s visit to Tallahassee Community College:

Duncan fielded questions on a variety of topics, ranging from the federal Race to the Top competition to teacher pay.

On that subject, Duncan said he envisions first-year teachers making $60,000 –- and the best and brightest drawing salaries in excess of $150,000.

He would also like to see financial incentives for teachers who take jobs in struggling schools –- or who teach high-demand subjects like math and science.

“We’ve been doing the wrong thing by teachers and the education profession for so long,” he said.
