Can Merit Pay For Teachers Improve Quality Of Education?

 

Providing a quality education for your child is one thing most strive to do. Across the nation, school districts are looking into ways to ensure that with merit pay for teachers.

Basing a teacher’s salary on his or her performance in the classroom is on the mind of at least one school administrator in Door County. Joe Stutting, superintendent for the Sturgeon Bay School District, says he and a committee will research compensation methods this school year and merit pay is included on the list.

Stutting says that could include merit pay; however a teacher’s effectiveness shouldn’t only be based on student test scores.

In th Gibraltar School District, Mary Witteborg teaches business and marketing. She also points out that multiple factors go into a student’s performance.

Stutting adds that there are a lot of “moving pieces” in the system.

Act 10 put the decision on merit pay into the hands of district leaders.

 

In the August 19, 2013 DoorCountyDailyNews.com Opinion Poll, 63% of the respondents (120 people) said they would favor a Wisconsin law linking teachers' effectiveness with their pay. What do you think? Send your opinions to news@doorcountydailynews.com.
