12. then why doesn't he say that
I'll tell you why because it isn't true. No where, not in a single solitary place in either that interview, or that study is one word written about working in bad schools. If he meant to only apply it to those schools then he wouldn't need to talk about comparing apples to apples. Merit pay has a very, very specific meaning in education. It has meant that since it has been used. It means using some system to evaluate teachers and paying the ones you deem best under that system. Duncan's system uses test scores for two of the three criteria and evaluations of individual teachers for the third. It is plain as day in the link I provided and you still evidently haven't bothered to read.
