PAY FOR PERFORMANCE?

NYC Educator takes a look at a new explanation for the old problem of low teacher salaries proffered by Gotham leaders of late:

Mayor Bloomberg’s contention that teachers need to raise productivity in order to justify raises beyond 1.33% a year is interesting. I’d certainly like to see that concept applied to my personal expenses.
Have you noticed your car's gasoline working 150-200% better over the last few years? Has your community improved its services 20%, to match your property tax increases? Has Con Ed been offering you double quality gas and electric? Has the US Government improved its services by 33%, to match its budget increase? Do you feel more secure, now that your insurance premiums are so much higher? Has that home you want to buy become 300% more comfortable over the last five years?
Well, those things haven’t happened to me, either.
