D.C. Teachers to Decide: Job Security or $100,000 Paycheck

This was happening this morning while I was at Logan for the training for new special educators (a refresher for me!)...

As the start of school gets close, a look at teacher blogs shows D.C. teachers are far apart on a new contract. "It's more money and I think it will bring more qualified teachers into the system and get rid of some teachers who aren't," said teacher Heather Migdon. Teacher Jeff Canady doesn't agree. "This is not pay tied to performance. This is basically a scheme to eliminate teachers rights." ABC7News
The rift is playing out in a blizzard of cellphone messages and e-mails, Facebook entries and posts on teacher blogs such as D.C. Teacher Chic and Dee Does the District. The Washington Post
