Florida LEA Succeeds With Merit Pay and Without Tenure

As Bill Tucker notes over at the Quick and the Ed, there’s one LEA in Florida that has already put into place many of the reforms that were part of S.B. 6, which was vetoed by Gov. Crist last week. The LEA has merit pay and no teacher tenure, Tucker points out, and is attracting strong teachers. To reward the LEA for its success, the Florida legislature has cut its funding. Tucker wrote about this Florida LEA in a feature story that appeared in Education Next in Summer 2009.
