Merit Pay for Wisconsin Teachers?
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had an article in yesterday’s paper discussing merit pay for teachers. It suggested that Milwaukee and other Wisconsin schools could learn from other school districts like Pittsburgh’s school district, which has successfully implemented a merit pay system.
With school board elections coming up quickly in the spring, it is important that if you support education reforms like merit pay for teachers, that you run for school board. If we want conservative policies in our schools and local government, we need to have conservatives run for office so they can implement those conservative policies. The filing deadline for the school board elections is January 4, 2011.
