Some Florida teachers say they are concerned about a plan to eliminate tenure and base half of their pay on student performance on state tests. One National Board Certified Teacher says her son will start college soon, and she worries what a fluctuating salary based on student scores will do for her ability to get credit or a college loan. "Usually I have 80 percent of my students making gains," she said. "But I can honestly say there are some years ... when my kids don't make as many gains."
