Daniel Pink on Why Tying Teacher Pay to Test Scores Won't Work

Wes Fryer has a series of posts about the Creativity World Forum happening in Oklahoma this week.  One of those posts features a fifteen minute video excerpt of Daniel Pink talking about creativity and motivation.  I've watched Daniel Pink speak a few times and I read his work as well so I wasn't going to watch this video right away until I read this part of the talk description written by Wes.
"His discussion of how research linking teacher pay to student test scores has shown ZERO positive impact on student achievement is particularly important and relevant today."
