As a hard core socialist, he is beholden to the teacher's union. Doing so ensures him their votes, and guarantees that there will not be a market discipline concept introduced that could wipe out poor performing schools/teachers and reward those who perform admirably. Our socialist-minded state is utterly hopeless.

0 comments? Are you kidding me? Before the Star Trib ultra liberal staff started hiding comments, there were several posted on this story. I realize they didnt match theProgrssive agenda of this site, but why delete them?

As a teacher who approves of measuring teacher performance, I actually support the veto.

Good luck with that Governor. Don't expect much cooperation from the Legislature after doing that.

I hope the union tells Mark Dayton that it is okay for him to eat and sleep. The poor fellow might suffer quite a bit otherwise.

knowing people that teach ... this is a good thing that our governor vetoed this bill... the idea that bad teachers will continue while new young teachers will be gone is not true. If a teacher is bad, they can get rid of them.

Good for Governor Dayton! It's a vote for fairness for teachers (something the current legislative leadership could care less about, indeed, they would rather be intentionally unfair to teachers), and in the long run also better for students and school districts where experience in the art of teaching is much more important than arbitrary fads in education theory.
