All I Want For Teacher Appreciation Day

I appreciate the lunch and the cards and the tweets and gifts and all the other little thank yous. I really do; we all do.

But you know what I really want today?

Respect.

Hi Y'all, Check out the R-E-S-P-E-C-T the TN teachers in Knoxville might get from the Broadie Superintendent with his proposed merit pay, oh, I mean, strategic compensation plan, nicknamed APEX
http://apex.knoxschools.org/modules/groups/group_pages.phtml?gid=2503890&nid=235112&sessionid=09451397218b23348caff94cf6aa5045

Attract good teachers? With this The school board might as well say they can spin straw into gold.
