Not only did Newsweek report on the growing support for paying teachers based upon their ability in the classroom, but today?s article in the Washington Post also reports on this basic concept, foreign to our government education system. It seems merit pay plans expose ?fissures? between the teacher unions and longtime Democratic friends. You got to love this quote:

“Some education experts say the unions are out of step with parents and voters who support the business-oriented idea of providing financial incentives for excellent work.”

I think they got it! Maybe?
