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.

McAfee & Me

I don't know what was going on with the McAfee scan but it took forever to get done. It only took 6 hours to complete and bogged down the laptop the whole time. I gave up and played Wii instead! Well, and finished my book!
A new record on Power Strikes - 767 pins! 123 pins from a perfect score! Still working on that...maybe tomorrow, or rather today! Good thing I have tomorrow off. Just need to get in and see the doctor...and make cookies. Mom's got all the kids on Thursday and she's out of cookies. :(
