An anonymous tipster reports that on The View today, Barbara Walters told Joel Klein he was a great chancellor, and praised him for instituting merit pay for both teachers and students.
Whoopi Goldberg replied that teachers ought to be paid more rather than labor under these conditions.
The Republican on The View, what's-her-name, claimed the Klein-Weingarten merit pay program made teachers work harder.
Whoopi responded that if teachers didn't need to work second jobs, it would improve the quality of education.
Thank you Whoopi!
