Otter backs teacher pay-for-performance

Gov. Otter is joining state Superintendent of Schools Tom Luna to propose a pay-for-performance system for the state's public school teachers. "Excellence should be rewarded," Otter told lawmakers, "which is why Supt. Luna and I are committed to establishing a pay system for teachers that emphasizes their performance, not their tenure." The comment won a round of applause in the House chambers.
