    should the teachers who fail to educate the children in the district be paid for their work anyway regardless of whether they work hard or put in extra effort?

    Let's see now... if we apply the same standard and criteria by which Congress continues to collect their paychecks, the answer has to be "YES".

      Neither is satisfactory.  But don't assume that I believe the teachers weren't working hard in this district.  Bureaucracy and rhetoric get in the way of cooperation between teachers and administrators- if they don't take responsibility for poor performance (both of them along with the rest of the community) nothing changes and we end up with this sort of brinksmanship.  Luckily the parties are back at the table to discuss other alternatives today.
