The Florida Board of Education unanimously approved Tuesday a plan that will grant bonuses to the state’s top teachers, an assessment that will primarily be based on how their students perform on standardized tests and other measurements.

Now if we could just get many parents to give a damn about their kids’ school performance, we might be getting somewhere. If I was a Florida teacher, I’d offer half my incentive bonus to the parents of the kids who are dragging down my class average, and, as a result, my salary.

No doubt the NEA is in “Lock n’ load” mode at this very minute over this.
