Performance Pay, Five Years Ago - Not Much Has Changed

Hemingwayatlanticcover Intrigued by performance pay and pay differentials?  Of course you are.  As education policy goes, it's so nerdy hot.  Before you get too worked up, however, check out this Matt Miller article from five years ago in the Atlantic to see just how far -- or not -- the debate has moved (A New Deal For For Teachers).  Yes, five years ago.  In the article, Miller -- who shows up with a great article on education every year or two -- pitches a $30 billion per year scheme to bring performance pay to the nation.  But that's the easy part.  As often, Miller doesn't have much of an idea about how to get the plan accepted and adopted.  He proposes putting the money on the table and letting districts work it out.  Right.
