School innovation


Faced with a budget crisis, this school is going to: decrease from 75 to 60 teachers, keep class sizes the same, ask teachers to teach more classes, and increase salaries by $14K/yr. The most interesting quote for me was this:

Which gets to another part of the change at Oconomowoc: No one will discuss it openly because of confidentiality rules, but the 15 teachers who have been told they will not be back next year were not picked casually. The old seniority rules are gone under Act 10. A mix of factors, including subject area, was involved, but it is a sure bet that administrators' assessment of quality played a big part. And quality is not something everyone agrees on - more than 2,000 people became "friends" of a Facebook page expressing solidarity with the 15.

We'll see if it works.


Hahahahaaaa!!! That is ME laughing at YOU, cruel world.
