A couple of education news items. One irksome, one rather humorous.
Hundreds of teachers awaiting bonuses were warned in a letter late last month by Education Commissioner David Driscoll they may not receive their bonuses unless state legislators restore planned budget cuts.So they go into teaching encouraged by a bonus that now won't be forthcoming. Sue 'em for breach of contract I say.
Surely you jest.
[Texas's] standardized test is no longer just the TAKS. It's the TAKS(tm).Texas thinks that other states will pay for its standardized test? Texas? The state's educational system was gutted by President Unelected before he gutted the national system. It's unlikely that any state is going to want such a state's test.
