Fairness with Capuchin Monkeys
I found this video, which I was made aware of from Diane Ravitch‘s excellent blog was funny, but it was also stark in the inequity that it creates. Basically…think merit pay for teachers, and unequal compensation and how that disparity can cause animosity between people…well, in this case monkeys.
Merit pay has been dis-proven time and time again…but the “reformers” keep trying…as a matter of fact, so do our Education Secretary and unfortunately, our President. Pass this around…it is funny…but it also carries a message!
