The Weingarten Betrayal

That Randi is really a bargainer. Here is how she gave teachers the power to determine who gets the money for the higher test scores:
Four-member “compensation committees” at each school, consisting of two teachers, the principal and a principal’s appointee, will decide how to divide the money. They can reward everyone equally or give more money to the teachers whose students’ scores rise the most.
Wonder what happens in a tie? Right.
