Stuck With "Merit Pay"

Three slightly different takes on the new "merit pay" plan, for all you diehards

10 schools will offer teachers merit pay Tribune
The teacher-incentive and training program, called Recognizing Excellence
in Academic Leadership, will be expanded to a total of 40 city schools over
the next four years. Each school will get about $500,000 to $750,000 a year
based on its size, and yearly performance bonuses will range from $1,000 to as
much as $8,000.

Chicago school officials named 10 schools where
teachers next year can earn up to $9,000 in performance bonuses, and
master teachers can earn an extra $15,000. Over the next four years, up
to 40 low-income schools with high teacher turnover will join the
teacher-incentive and teacher training program. See full list below.
