Teachers here overwhelmingly approved an experiment linking the pay of some teachers to the academic performance of their students. Friday's vote marks a significant departure from the traditional opposition by teachers' unions to merit pay plans. Denver's "pay for performance" plan, as it is being called, would go a step beyond previous merit plans and for the first time tie a teacher's salary directly to how well students perform in the classroom.

Teachers in the city's public schools voted overwhelmingly Saturday night to approve a new contract, ending their five-day strike over salaries. Teachers cheered and held hands as union officials announced that 94% of the 2,708 voters approved the two-year contract. The deal gives teachers a 2.15% salary increase for the first year but lengthens their work year by 10 days to 190 days. After the first year, salaries will be renegotiated.

Thank goodness for Ruben Perez, that is what all of the teachers at Horace Mann Middle School said when the assistant principal attempted to suspend 97 students for fighting, absenteeism and sassing back in class. But Denver school district officials, arguing that Perez failed to fully document the infractions of many of those students, instead suspended the 41-year-old Perez for one day with pay and ordered that he take a crash course in disciplinary procedures.
