Video: Arianna Huffington – End Public School Tenure, Pay Good Teachers More

This is taken from an interview Arianna gave at the Aspen Ideas Festival last week:

Basically, Arianna wants to end the union stranglehold on our public schools and let the market reward and punish behavior. What a good idea. I wonder where else we could apply it?

In truth, I don’t keep up with all of her output so maybe this swing to the right on education has been common knowledge for a while. Anyway, I found it surprising. She even seems to be endorsing merit pay for good teachers.

Really this is a point of view that could pass muster with most conservatives. In fact, I’m pretty sure the Huffington Post would denounce this if it were uttered by, say, Scott Walker.
