-- -- -- -- President Obama announcing his new plan to better our educational system one billion dollars for new master teacher -- -- selected.
-- -- 20000.
Dollars a year.
They share their knowledge with other teachers improving the quality of education for everyone you know what it sounds noble and both Democrats and Republicans agree that our schools need help.
Billion dollar -- Is her and there's there's some light on the details here also joining me now is Republican strategist Noel that pork that we Chris -- Former aide to democratic senator Chuck Schumer Fox News contributor thanks to both of you for -- us.
You know god.
I mean yeah could be I don't have bit I mean to you have a lot.
I don't know the funny thing is we all for one scripts for -- I imagine as we all agreed that the education system need some help and in -- -- isn't all that bad.
But the deal what the incentive is right now a billion dollars trying to figure off the top.
What justify the -- how did you come to the one billion dollar market where we have found to be -- -- I don't think it's a lot of money.
First thing I would do have I would not can I work congress a billion dollars -- rounding -- back -- But I live but I will say that the first thing -- would cut is the tax deduction for -- problem that Mitt Romney's taking that 77000.
Dollar horse from tax deduction that -- -- That would help a little bit it would actually paper to -- -- It's -- -- and I mean let's bring it back to education help but let you know listen what I.
I have when I worked in congress senator Schumer he had a similar -- called the mark to plan for education that had incentive pay keep teachers in math and science where we really are lacking did union tape back as they don't like special incentive pay and that's one of the problem that there I'm glad you brought that up and that is one of the big problems there I mean how how would you handle -- well -- I'm not I think that listen.
-- I don't think the -- -- bad guys here I think that the -- you have to -- program -- well especially with math and science where we are lacking enough teachers they -- while -- guys because they protect the mediocre in the ports -- split I think with tenure and seniority I think that's one of the biggest problems while they also make it possible for the good teachers -- have a a living wage and and pay for their families and and and stay in the -- this is being presented pay for teachers are doing -- so there's a living wage -- -- here.
Teacher absolutely wants a good point and I actually think that the incentive to for teachers should be to keep your job right now a lot of people cannot find jobs and the incentive should be.
You think you should do well in your top look if I'm working -- nine to five job.
They're gonna measuring how many products have put out our -- -- -- hammer -- debt and and I can keep my job why should a teacher.
You know -- I wanna be a mediocre teacher -- I need the incentive they should do their job and do it.
-- I'd look I think Governor Cuomo and and Mayor Bloomberg here in New York.
Have have done a lot to try to figure out ways that the to split the split the apple here are trying to figure out.
How we can have both incentive pay and some quality control among teachers and and and work with -- you're gonna be.
Over the phone I think -- came running up a big run into buzz saw trying to do that I mean some of the plans are charter schools that's not something that unions love.
-- so it's it's not easy to reform the system the way it is in some people think.
That we should blow up and start over either with vouchers are charter schools rather than programs like this where you try and in sent teachers with -- with -- -- and that's not working.
I think I think we should work that we should take a look at what's working around the country and there are a lot of public school systems that are working in national charter schools that are having some success around and there's a lot of that's right eligible -- -- -- and we should bring that into the public sector I think the main thing that works.
In the in in education is having parents were there for their kids who would still educational values there and no amount of money's gonna change that no teacher can change it but in my.
Private schools I mean are really working -- -- -- we give people vouchers for tickets and private schools and have real choice that would create real competition waiting want to thank you like I'm I'm actually on the board of trustees of children's scholarship fund was found about ten enforcement engine the late John -- both of them.
-- -- But -- Canada great organization where it today it's -- funded.
Private schools for which children that -- but the -- also gives along with the scholarship they also give some as well so you have the periods he of the school system.
A private schools are excelling and we should look at well hi there -- elitist and out -- -- campaign I think and I Grover Norquist lets -- raise taxes on the richest 1% of Americans.
I don't agree to some sort of public's some sort of voucher system but until that time -- not take money away from the education system right now.
Look at our money's gonna go right there and it's not gonna filter through Washington needed to people's everyday yeah.
Hey sorry -- -- -- -- -- yeah.
Yeah and in that billion at the end of the day is -- five bucks for Rockwell in depth look out.
We've got to figure out a way to keep.
Good math and science teachers in the public school system because not everybody able go to private school.
Not everybody is being able -- charge I don't -- I haven't yeah aren't enough about why the -- luxury item numbers remarkably buoyant sacrifice.
90% of Americans with 10% in good part without truth work number one number two -- -- the Phil how did the then.
That one billion dollar market decided where did it yeah sounding never you know how speeches are ready to go to -- about the nature cabinets and.
