The Teacher Pay Reform Bandwagon

There's a great if somewhat uncritical rundown of state teacher pay reform plans from Kavan Petersen at Stateline.

"Paying teachers based on talent and student performance instead of seniority is gaining traction in the states thanks to support from governors and new federal incentives to tie teacher pay to student achievement....Minnesota and Florida are at the forefront of the movement...Governors in at least five states (Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Massachusetts and Mississippi) are pushing for similar changes, arguing that this will attract higher quality educators and reward the ones who get better results in the classroom or take-on tough assignments."
