Will there be less teachers next year

It looks like they got it on the November ballot after all. If it passes, a teachers pay raise would depend on how well their classroom does in the state exams. You can read more here.
I don't really like the sound of that. Our public education system definitely needs work but that's not going to solve the problem. The classroom advances at the slowest students pace. A teacher spends more time helping the slower learning students and doesn't have enough time to teach those who are ready to continue.

That's a controversial issue in our state too. Critics of such initiatives point out that teachers will spend all of their time preparing students for the state exams and nothing else.
