Update on the teacher negotiations in Washington

I hadn't caught anything on Michelle Rhee's negotiations with the D.C. teachers' union; I've just caught this on Mothertalkers:

Over the last several months, D.C. Chancellor Michelle Rhee and the Washington Teachers' Union have been hammering out details on how to help the district get rid of ineffective teachers but also compensate teachers fairly. WTU President George Parker puts the chances of reaching a deal at "50-50."

Worth keeping an eye on in light of yesterday's bill hearing on merit pay here in Massachusetts.
