...and teachers who DID receive their merit pay did not necessarily deserve it either... and some fantastic educators who work their butts off didn't get a dime... Too many variables factor into merit pay.... ie: Does every teacher have students in their classrooms who are homeless, who are blind, do not speak English, are on IEPs, are in Title One, have little parent support and volunteerism, have very little support staff... Come on!!! Some districts have the cards stacked against them to begin with... the best thing for them to do is apply for a transfer or leave the state... and what kind of teachers will be left and willing to teach those who need it the most...?????
