Comments

While I am optimistic about the profession and these proposals, there is a huge obstacle to the pay issues. Teachers who have rightfully advanced up the career and pay ladder are more expensive. We presently see districts and schools hiring the cheapest teachers, ones who very well fit the role of test-preppers.

It's great to see people reinventing and using similar wheels.
