Denver's teacher incentives

Next week, Denver voters will decide whether to increase property taxes to raise $25 million that will be targeted toward teacher incentives.

Normally, I would oppose this. But Denver has done teacher pay incentives differently than any other place. Instead of implementing them to spite teachers, they did it to reward them. No really, they did. 59% of teacher union members favored the program in a vote last year.

Which begs the question: Why don't other cities, districts, and states that want to implement teacher incentives work with teachers instead of against them?
