Here in Florida, RTTT is known as SB6/SB736 … It is an unfunded mandate:
It requires testing four times a year at a ridiculous cost, but provides no money to local districts to develop or validate tests.
It also promises merit pay in trade for teacher continuing contracts, but provides no funds for merit pay.
And, worse, it requires states to remove the cap off charter schools.
It sets up failure and privatization at the same time.
No wonder corporate America loves it.
