The Merit Pay Program for Educators is an absurd program that gives bonuses to teachers and administrators for doing the job that they are supposed to do without the bonuses. It prepares our kids to pass State exams.
The legislators devised a plan that is contrary to educators who are hired to educate our children to the best of their ability.
Offering bonuses is a slap in the face of education itself.
The Merit Bonus Program makes the education system more like a factory program that gives bonuses like factory workers who to complete more parts. Our children are NOT piece-work products.
Educators need to do the job they were hired to do and the State needs to provide better professional salaries for them to do so.
Next will be students paid to learn programs. Whatever happened to learning for learning's sake?
