Governor Pawlenty says Minnesota schools will enact reforms, like incentive pay for teachers, if provided grants. At 9 a.m. on Midmorning, Kerri Miller's guests say schools across the country are experimenting with how to pay certain teachers more, and students appear to benefit. Dan Goldhaber is a research associate professor at the University of Washington's Center for Reinventing Public Education. He's the author of the paper, "Teacher Pay Reforms: The Political Implications of Recent Research." Paul Peterson is director of the Program on Education Policy and Governance at Harvard University and Editor of Education Next.

At 10 a.m., the male vocal ensemble Cantus and poet Robert Bly. They have colllaborated on a new series of poems set to music. Cantus' artistic director and Bly talk about the weaving of the work of different generations and genres.

I want to hear the Robert Bly article from 10 AM MPR dated 03/09/2007 on my computer (replayed), but I go round in loops and cannot locate the real audio piece.. Please help. I am in Arkansas, not in Minnesota.
