Soon, our first TeacherSolutions group here at TLN will release a report on our study of performance pay for teachers. We looked at the history of this issue, the many failures along the way, the objections, the rationales, and most important, the benefits (if any) for students and teachers. One reason the performance- or merit-pay issue has been revived recently is the proliferation of standardized testing in K-12.
