The best case I have ever heard against “merit pay”…

… and it isn’t even an education specific talk.

The video is a TED one – so much amazing stuff found here.  This one is 19 minutes long – and it’s well worth it if you want a scientific take on motivation and how incentives play into it.

Another super interesting idea is “20% time” – I wonder how this could possibly work within K-12?  Something to think about…

Truly,

Steve
