Joe Williams at the Chalkboard has some really great examples of how charter schools are working "to bring respect to the teaching profession other than old-school collective bargaining."
Worth wondering, however, how many of these schools would be working so far if it weren't for the threat of old-school collective bargaining.
Also worth noting that there are a lot of charter schools that do not treat their teachers this way. And finally, worth wondering if there's a correlation between how professionally a school treats its teachers and those test scores. (State ELA scores coming out on Monday.)
And even finally-er, worth wondering if I'm worthy of posting when my brain is fried by 100 degree heat.
