re: Should teachers be paid on student performance?
Teachers are already paid based on student performance... So I'm not sure why this is a thread unless you want the pay based solely on student performance. Then are you using student growth or will you use one standard test?

What?
Teacher Loan Forgiveness can range from 17k to as little as 5k. That's from Navient, I taught for 6 years at a lower-income school but because I was not Math or Science and only Middle School I got 7.5k forgiven.

You are totally off base. Teachers have no control over how little or how much parents in the child’s home place an emphasis on the importance of education.

So teachers don't make a difference then?

re: Should teachers be paid on student performance?
As a teacher myself, I wouldn't mind it IF

-students were actually held accountable and not just pushed through to the next grade regardless of performance for the sake of graduation rates.

-parents were somehow held accountable for their kids behavior when they refuse to put forth effort and are constantly disrupting the school environment.


But if students can do whatever they want and parents will allow them to do whatever they want, you won't see any drastic improvements any time soon.

There are several types of teachers that would be tough to measure with "performance" standards. Special ed, PE, music and art teachers for example.

Perhaps the overall growth of scores in the school could serve as a proxy. If students are staying engaged in school because of PE or art, that should reflect well on the school overall.

Special ed is still different though.
