The Canberra Times has coverage of the latest teacher’s pay dispute.

As long as we have no way to reward (or even identify) teachers who are perfoming better than others, this is going to remain a vexed issue.
UPDATED: Katy Gallagher has put out a media release on the race to the top with a committment to make sure our teachers are the highest paid in Australia.
Well, it’s what the people want.
