Not All Ed Associations Oppose Incentive Pay
Think most ed groups and every ed association are all against incentive pay? So did I. But then I found out that the 175,000-member ASCD supports incentive pay and has endorsed the Teacher Excellence for All Children (TEACH) Act (Incentive Pay for Teachers Is an Option (Take 2). ASCD supports incentive pay and performance pay, for individuals as well as schools. As long as it's voluntary, not based on a single test, and determined locally. Sure, it's not a traditional association like the AASA or the Chiefs, but it's worth noting.
