William Schaefer, 89, ex-Maryland governor, Baltimore mayor By Michael Dresser The Baltimore Sun
BALTIMORE —William Donald Schaefer, the dominant political figure of the last half-century of Maryland history, died Monday after a “do-it-now” career that changed the face of Baltimore while bringing a new burst of energy to the city he loved. The 89-year-old had recently been hospitalized for pneumonia and had been in poor health for the past few days. In four terms as mayor and
two as governor, he was a champion of big projects that changed the face of Baltimore: Harborplace, Camden Yards, the National Aquarium, the Convention Center and the light rail among them. Yet he was also intensely involved with the mundane details of city neighborhoods. As mayor, he would patrol the city at night and on weekends, calling city officials to demand immediate action to fill a pothole or clean a garbagestrewn alley.
Flamboyant but private, irascible but sentimental, quirky but hard-headed, Schaefer won immense and enduring popularity among voters for his blunt talk and passionate dedication to public service. He prided himself on saying what ordinary people were thinking — even when it went counter to prevailing political norms — but his outspokenness would eventually contribute to his ouster as comptroller in the 2006 Democratic primary. Schaefer’s temper was legend-
ary, but his eruptions were often calculated for maximum effect. He loved intensely — his mother, his friends, his city and state. And he hated fiercely — most notably in his poisonous relationship with former Gov. Parris Glendening and enduring contempt for the late Colts owner Robert Irsay. As mayor, he was a tireless promoter of Baltimore. As governor, he was a builder whose second term soured in a wrenching fiscal crisis.
“All of these dollars go directly to teachers and leaders. That’s money that’s not going to contractors or Chalkboard or consultants.” — Dan Jamison, The Chalkboard Project vice president for education policy
Grant Continued from C1 Last week, the federal government gave the education reform nonprofit an additional $11.2 million for the program. The grant, to be spent over five years, will be divided among a number of districts, including Bend-La Pine, Crook County and Redmond. Schools in Albany, Lebanon, SalemKeizer and Oregon City will get some of the money, too. Districts participating in the CLASS Project have spent the past two years fleshing out four core principles: increasing career paths for teachers, improving teacher evaluations, offering teachers more professional development opportunities, and implementing new pay structures that give teachers incentives to take on leadership and mentoring roles. Next year, they will begin implementing those principles. Dan Jamison, the vice president for education policy at The Chalkboard Project, said the additional funds are a recognition that the CLASS Project must be sustained for more than a couple of years. “It requires a different level of resource commitment,” he said. “They want to see us take this thing to the finish line.” Jamison looks at what the CLASS Project school districts are doing as a five-year national action research study.
Use of funds limited The funds can be used only to implement new compensation models designed by the CLASS Project’s participants. “Certainly during a time of profound economic crisis there are many, many things we would like to do,” Jamison said. “But we also recognize and we know that teacher and educator effectiveness is really the best, most sacred commitment we can make. In past years in Oregon we have seen good times and bad, and commitments to teachers, whether it’s mentorship or professional development … [have] been very inconsistent.” Jamison understands it will be difficult for some to see money targeted to specific programs, but “it reflects a broader commitment by our national leaders for sustained, guaranteed support for educator effectiveness.” The funds, Jamison said, will go to pay teachers who have taken on additional roles and responsibilities in their schools, and to teachers who show high levels of effectiveness in the classroom. That will likely look different in each school district receiving the funding. Dan Jones and Karen Stiner are the co-coordinators for the CLASS Project in Bend-La Pine Schools. In May, committees will present their plans for implementing the CLASS Project in area schools. Among the largest changes under consideration are those that would change the way teachers and principles are evaluated and how teachers are
compensated. One proposal, for instance, would replace the current salary schedule, a step system based on years in the classroom and level of education, with a schedule containing four levels ranging from “emerging professional” to “master teacher leader.” Upper range teachers would be paid extra for their work outside the classroom. The extra compensation is intended to keep these teachers, who otherwise might seek to become administrators, in the classroom.
Bend-La Pine picked for national study Bend-La Pine is also one of 12 districts nationwide chosen to participate in a study examining the relationship between teacher compensation and student achievement. “Their premise is if you increase the amount of money that a teacher receives, that will have a direct correlation with student achievement,” Jones said of the U.S. Department of Education. Of the 12 Bend-La Pine schools in the study, half will serve as a control group with all teachers receiving a 1 percent salary increase. The other half will serve as a test group. Those schools will operate a value-added schoolwide model, in which entire schools will be paid partly based on whether their students are moving to or beyond their expected growth level. Teachers will also be paid based on their effectiveness in the classroom. Details of how that will be measured are still being determined. “All of these dollars go directly to teachers and leaders,” Jamison said. “That’s money that’s not going to contractors or Chalkboard or consultants.” Eventually the federal government will use the results of the study to determine what made a difference in the school sites.
Development and teacher training The district will also use the grant funds to pay for professional development for all teachers and training for principals. Jamison expects school districts to see significant changes in how federal funding is doled out in the next few years. In the future, he predicts, “federal funds will be directly linked to performance evaluations and professional development, new career roles and opportunities with links to student growth.” Bend-La Pine Schools hopes to begin implementing some of the changes in the 201112 school year, though Jones and Stiner said they’ll likely be piloting the changes in the 12 Teacher Incentive Fund schools and Marshall High School. But given the financial crisis, Jones says it could be awhile before the district can put all of the systemwide changes in place. Sheila G.
