Anybody else watch the debate Monday night? Sen. Dodd was the only one who acknowledged that the accountability aspects of NCLB need to be continued but the worst was Gov. Richardson. My party of registration always buys into this underfunding myth but he made it very explicit. In essence, the lower the performance of a school the more money the school needs; it's almost tautological. Not provide the victims with viable alternatives, just spend more money. Smaller class size (an expensive proposition in itself) only exacerbates any shortage of qualified teachers. How can we attract more? You guessed it: Offer a guaranteed minimum teacher salary.
