Teacher Pay Raises Based On Performance?

(MISSOURINET) –  The Missouri Legislature passed a budget last year to help increase teacher pay.

Lawmakers will be asked again this year to boost those salaries but getting a raise could be based on performance.

Missouri Senate President Pro Tem Caleb Rowden says lawmakers should provide a baseline for the state to track performance.

Missouri’s K-12 public school teachers are one of the lowest paid in the nation, if not the lowest.

Senate Democratic Leader John Rizzo says not giving teachers a pay raise when the state has billions of dollars in its bank account would be “a travesty.”

Missouri House Speaker Dean Plocher (plocker), a Republican, also wants to pay teachers based upon performance.
