NYSSBA Pulse Poll

NYS School Board Association sent out one of their periodic pulse polls, and the results are interesting. With about 55 respondents so far, 53 to 47% support merit pay for improved performance, 78 to 22% support a longer school year, and 75 to 25% support national standards. I'm in the majority on each point. I'll check back later to see whether results have changed.

LATER: With over 500 responding, it's 50-50 for merit pay, 69-31 for a longer school year, and 66-34 for national standards.
