Completely confidential, you say... Arne, here's your chance to really make a difference in our public schools! Jack Markell - Get off your ass and get out the vote! C'mon Esquire, you know you wanna still feel relevant. Visit the Union's My Space page...I mean Survey Monkey poll.
You too, my little sheep. We've all paid our dues (and then some!). Get your two cents in, before the polls close. When you're done monkeying around, make sure you bid on my Ebay auction before it closes - "One ounce of dignity" - absolutely priceless in Delaware! (shipping and handling not included)

SIG: Computerized Voting To Change A Contract
"To vote for this school improvement plan, press 2." Well, almost. A Delaware district is asking teachers at three low-performing schools to vote on the district's $2 million SIG plan -- using Surveymonkey. But there's no differentiation among the three schools -- they're all lumped together for voting purposes -- the information provided is limited to time and pay issues not curriculum or other key issues, and it's not clear that the survey is open only to teachers at the schools (try it out, maybe you can enter your vote). One additional wrinkle: if the teachers vote the SIG plan down then the schools will may become part of a Mass Insight turnaround zone, in which case the options include also closing, firing staff, etc.
