Campbelltown. 'Super teachers' salaries

The first "super teachers" on salaries of almost $100,000 a year have started work in public schools under a landmark performance pay deal aimed at radically lifting classroom quality. Federal Education Minister Julia Gillard claimed the performance pay scheme would "bring back the spirit to disadvantaged schools". Education chiefs expect the benefits of the pioneering program to rub off on Macquarie Fields High and on four other local schools with which it has formal ties - Macquarie Fields Public, St Andrews Public, Elizabeth Macarthur High and Leumeah High. More than 100 teachers ultimately will apply for the $98,000 positions.

Give these bright young teachers "Talking to the Whole Wide World" and they will be able to deliver a revolutionary new foreign languages program that really works.
That would do quite a bit to raise the spirit of disadvantaged schools.

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.
