Voicethread:"Race to the Top"

My state recently won the "Race to the Top" grant. Although I welcome change, I have concerns about what this will mean for my students and me in the classroom. Please view my voicethread by clicking on the title and let me know your thoughts.


  1. Everyone,

    I appreciate your support and encouragement.

  2. Jennifer,
    This is Tami Phipps from class. I have to use a different account, sometimes, to get my replies to post. I made a comment to your voice thread. I hope it saved. Man, did you pick a good topic for your thread! I agree with you on this one. I don't think it is a good idea to reward teachers for good scores. I think they call it "merit pay", don't they? You raised some very good points that need to be addressed. You are right about the lower income schools, too. You did a great job with the thread, by the way. I almost forgot why I went to your thread in the first place. Way to go!!!

    Tai P.
