June 6, 2013

FLINT — Here’s what I think teachers should tell state lawmakers about their insulting and damaging idea to tie K-12 teacher salaries to student performance: We will if you will....

Forgot about lawmakers. Don't pay any of them. Make it truly a public service avocation.

All Federal and state legislation related to education should be abolished, and local school districts should have a free hand in educating students. Having the same standards for student performance in all settings and all locations is sheer lunacy.

If OUR elected representatives, were 'paid' on their performance of/for representing their constituents,

there would be zero payout from state coffers.

These guys would then seek real work?

Andy,

What rock did you climb out from under, and where have you been for the last 45 years ?

Legislators are already “PAID” for their PERFORMANCE.

As long as these hobo’s jump for their employers,

(the people that financed their campaigns,

and paid them under the table, with over seas accounts)

there is no real need for them to accept taxpayer money for their non-performance representation of their constituents !

Here in lies the rub for the progressive position. What is good for the goose is now apparently not good for the gander.

All hail Obahma Care!! One issue already taken hold is the outcome based reimbursement. Bad outcome bad reimbursement. Don't hear many/any progressives complaining about that and it's consequences. Although Frog seems to, surprising.

Yet put the same thing on teachers, strong progressive supporting union, and all of a sudden this type of structure to determine income is unjust.

Hypocrits the whole lot of them.

Employees and workers,

are most apt to succeed where they have a degree of ‘control’ over the direction of their own initiative,

and the outcome from extra ordinary imitative.

Unfortunately, public employees, by the nature of their jobs, are less than likely to have any degree of ‘control’ over what is required in their jobs that will affect outcomes, and their pay.

In nature, ‘spawn’ has only ONE CHANCE to succeed.

Lately, there is a trend to ‘accept’ only those “circumstances” where the ‘outcome’ will prove or most likely will be positive.

With the trend towards accountability, and

performance based ‘outcomes’,

many entities, entrepreneurs, mechanics, and medical care doctor’s

are increasingly proving to be more cautious about the jobs they will undertake.

Auto care facilities, medical doctors,

as well as others engaged in positive performance based outcomes,

will more readily accept ‘cases’ that easily prove to be successful in outcome,

with the least amount of bother.

Importantly with the eruption of private education schools,

many funded with taxpayer dollars,

there is an increasing separation of those with means,

and those who must accept ‘public’ education as their only choice,

where teachers are faced with the ’left-overs’, and little ‘chance’ of income betterment, because of

societies ‘dregs’ left in the public school systems.

Unfortunately, and with increasing cries,

public school teachers must accept every piece of human outcome,

as the basis for their salary and livelihood.

Teachers should and must now

have the chance to choose those students who are most likely to succeed.

Those students who are not chosen,

should be referred to an alternative manual arts, technical education programs,

no chance for escaping this form of education on the taxpayer dole.

Parents,

(miscreants, and their spawn)

would now have a

positive ‘incentive’ to succeed with their publicly paid schooling,

and not, year-after-year, have yet another opportunity and chance at yet another alternative form of education at our expense!

Teachers should and must by law, now have the chance to choose those students who are most likely to succeed.

Parents, after their spawns’ first try at public education,

should then be forced to accept responsibility for educating their spawn,

at their expense and not at taxpayers expense.
