I've been traveling a lot lately. I was over in Australia during Easter. It was interesting to note that they celebrate Easter the same way as we do -- commemorating the death and resurrection of Jesus by telling our children a giant bunny rabbit left chocolate eggs in the night.
Call them "Killing teachers' unions," "Getting rid of teachers," and oh yeah, "Pay for Performance."
I got as far as reading the first one, and it makes me want to vomit.
I sent the committee my response (and posted it on my blog) so that I can at least be on record as disgusted before they ignore me and 90% of the public that took the trouble to express their opinions over the last week, pat themselves on the back and ram it through.
