incentive pay

I think incentive pay is a great idea if you give teachers complete control of what happens in their classroom or within their teaching groups if their school is designed that way. Plus you would have to let them keep the students for 2 years. If a teacher’s job and pay is contingent on how much there students improve then they should be able to have complete control over how they learn. Also they should have enough time to undo what the previous teacher has done if that teacher was not good.

You are absolutely right. Those who are promoting this merit pay tend to be at the same job for several year with the same tasks and responsibilities. Their job allows the opportunity to show improvement year after year while jobs with variables such as teaching different students every year makes test scores rather subjective, as the test takers(a variable) change every year
