The Florida Chamber of Commerce supports the idea. I've talked to many teachers, and there's a concensus that there are bad teachers, and Principals don't get rid of them because the documentation process is too laborious. The reason teachers unions don't like this bill is that some teachers will make more than others, and that removes some of their bargaining leverage. Teachers will both like the opportunity to earn more money, and they will dislike the possibility that other teachers will earn more than they. They don't like that sometimes their students performance is determined by things outside of their own direct control. I believe that teachers have indirect control over many of those things, and that it is in the best interests of the children that we encourage teachers to be more proactive in influencing those things, whether its relationships with parents, coaches, insisting that students get into the right classes, or even reforming class logistics so that those who excel in one area and are behind in another can continue to develop at the proper speed. Teachers can even be loud voices of protest when administrators aren't letting them do their jobs, such as giving them unwritten rules prohibiting them from expelling or failing certain students. We need to give teachers the incentive to be proactive in these areas. http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/03/28/1550277/encourage-excellence-in-teaching.html Aaron
