Here's the beef: The Indiana Teachers object to Mitch Daniels wanting to establish merit pay for teachers and eliminate tenure.

So paying good teachers more money, and eliminating bad teachers is wrong?

Am I missing something here?

Well, yes and no. Tenure is an archaic and failed beast that needs to be put down, but basing teachers' salaries on merit pay is akin to "epic fail" itself...

If you need details, I will be happy to provide them...;-)
