Bonus Money Delayed In Chicago

Duncan_note_new Last week in front of Congress, Chicago schools chief Arne Duncan gushed about the district's federally-funded TIF program, noting that the checks for the first year of bonuses were coming out this month (Did The Bonus Money Make A Difference?).  Well, uh, no.  Not exactly.  A followup call to his office revealed that it won't be until November that teachers and staff at any of the 10 pilot schools for last year see any coin.  Test scores rise annually in Illinois, so there'll probably be something in it for everyone.  But it won't be for a while now.
