This is a step in the right direction because it includes incentives and rewards for PROGRESS by students regardless of their level. That's good, but why not include such progress-based rewards in ALL teachers' evaluations, whether they teach in a deprived school or in a high wealth school and neighborhood?
What is vital is to base pay for performance on PROGRESS as the STANDARD procedure, not as the exception to the rule. Let's recognize and reward every teacher who can do this year over year, year after year. Then we will be able to begin to identify the wheat from the chaff among teachers, schools and principals, in a fair way, free of favoritism and other irrelvant or harmful criteria.
Besides, basing recognition or rewards on LEVEL of scores obtained (which is now the standard and general way) is too easy to cheat or "fix" in many ways, not the least of which is simply to change the mix of students tested from year to year, rather than using longitudinal measurement.
