Pay for Performance in Education


Pay for performance or merit pay for teachers is quite a hot topic in the U.S. right now, especially after the new Obama incentive plan for education was released.

I have  concerns about this model.  Basically, I am not sure it is the best cure to improve learning.  I will probably blog about this later.

For now, take a look at this article located here and read the comments section as well.  Some good discussion around this topic.  As always, feel free to leave a comment below and/or pass this blog post along.
