I expect this to become an issue in the coming four years, and in past experience, I have found performance-based pay to be divisive in many school systems where it was
implemented poorly. I would support increasing pay for teachers. If
a “merit” plan were devised, I would like to see multiple factors figure into
the formula for “merit” pay, including (1) some measure of student learning
such as End of Grade Tests or EVAAS (Educational Value-Added Assessment System)
measures from SAS; (2) some measure of advanced teacher training or credential,
such as National Board Certification; and (3) student evaluations, carefully
crafted so as to measure classroom management and academic rigor. Before
establishing any such pay system, the Board should investigate best practices
that have been proven to be effective.
