Vernuccio on Fox Business

Labor Policy Director F. Vincent Vernuccio was a guest on Fox Business with host Neil Cavuto Friday evening discussing a proposal by Microsoft chief Bill Gates that the government should spend $5 billion to put cameras in every classroom in order to monitor teachers.

Vernuccio said monitoring teachers is necessary to improve their performance, especially in instances where merit pay is involved, but that spending that much money could be better directed in other ways to improve education outcomes.
