http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/07/excellent-educators-for-all_n_5562269.html I love how it never even occurs to them that the teachers in poorer areas may be getting lower scores because those students enter school with less experience academically. It's a lot of money to spend on something that I can't see how they will control. Our district doesn't even "place" teachers. People interview with individual schools and get hired by P's who want them. I think it's good to think about equity in education, but I don't think simply moving teachers around is going to be the answer. Imagine that 4 million dollars being spent on resources for those poorer schools.
