protestors for teachers

BOISE, Idaho — Members of the Idaho House approved a bill which will install a merit-pay plan for teachers starting in 2013.

The state would pay bonuses based on student performance, and teachers with less replaceable positions will earn higher wages.

Huffington Post reports:

The Idaho bill passed the House on Wednesday, March 9, and awaits Governor C. L. Butch Otter’s signature. With the governor’s approval, Idaho will officially become the first state to pass merit pay legislation.

The plan’s initial cost is estimated to be around $38 million, a number that would greatly increase in the following years. A similar bill was vetoed in Florida last year by Governor Charlie Crist, but a revised version is expected to gain approval from the new governor, Rick Scott.
