I really like the sound of the Chalkboard Project. I have one major concern... How do we avoid penalizing teachers who choose to teach in schools that are in low income and poverty areas. Both my wife, and a good friend work in schools that have over 70% on free and reduced lunch. It is much more difficult to see scholastic success in these schools than let's say Lake Oswego. The reasons are many, including parental involvement, dealing with abuse and drugs in the homes of these students, and so on. If performance will determine compensation, then who would teach in the needy areas that would hurt performance?
