I have to agree. Obviously not every child will have flying colors in their grades, but overall, if their set of general students are getting good grades, they should be rewarded with a raise. I do not want my tax dollars to go to a teacher that pops in a movie everyday and tells kids to take notes. I find that disrespectful. I have had my fair share of good and bad teachers. Some teachers are just not cut out for it. Maybe a trial period needs to be in place for new teachers. If they fail to cross over, then out they go.
Michael! Please get the facts straight. His name is Chance! I understand that you're just trying to get the news out there but I believe Kaila is right, it seems a bit cold.
