I love your quote “If our core belief is based on what other people think, then we eventually will allow their opinions to become our reality.” ~Darren L. Johnson
Do you have an essay in which you explain your objections to merit pay? I see things differently but would like to see your perspective. Thanks. N&O publication (March 11, 2013): http://www.newsobserver.com/2013/03/11/2742243/for-better-north-carolina-schools.html
My second post, “Vol.#2: Measuring My 2¢ On Merit“, was about my experience with this. Basically, it comes down to how you measure teacher effectiveness. Boiling kids down to a bubble-sheet number, and then boiling down what I did with them to that, is a flawed system at best.
