The op-ed in the Democrat is here.
A reader should not assume that I think the way we paid teachers in the past was fine. For example, giving teachers raises for earning graduate degrees in education is not supported by research.
But state policy-makers should not assume that teachers are the enemy. The state’s relationship with teachers should be rebuilt – that should be the policy priority.
I don’t believe the present proposals for adjusting Best and Brightest will accomplish that.
