LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan teachers' performance would play a bigger role in the amount they get in their paychecks under a proposal being debated in the Republican-controlled state House.
A bill recently debated in the House Education Committee would make teacher job performance the primary factor in determining pay. It would render meaningless years on the job and some advanced degrees.
Under current law, job performance only has to be one factor in teacher pay, along with the number of years in the classroom and achievement of advanced degrees.
Supporters argue that moving away from a system that rewards seniority will improve teachers and benefit students. But opponents worry the policy could cause competition among teachers.
