A few weeks ago I wrote about Senate Bill 386, a plan that would pay teachers according to success rates of students. Jeff Hubbard of the Georgia Association of Educators contends that though Gov. Perdue received positive input from some teachers surveyed, that was a few months ago and right before final exams. Now that all the details are out, nothing positive is being said and teachers want to be questioned again regarding their thoughts about the merit based pay system.
Hubbard and Gov. Perdue are encouraging educators to call their legislators and allow their voice to be heard.
If the bill passes, it is said to take effect by 2014.
