"He said he would advocate for programs that would give financial incentives to teachers who pursue the administrative track."
Before that, he should advocate for financial incentives for teachers to grow professionally as teachers (i.e., funding for Masters Degrees, Summer Institutes, National Board Certification, foreign travel, sabbaticals for research, etc) rather than settling for the district-led institutional dribble that passes as professional development now (i.e., EDI or CI etc)!

I diaagree with Los Altos Teacher because professionals constantly learn on their own and pay for their own masters. This is part of the problem with our education system, everyone wants something for nothing and for someone else to pay.
