Teachers Will Get Merit Bonuses

Here's a new wrinkle in the ongoing dispute about timing of the first merit-pay bonuses to teachers under the new “Students Come First” school reform laws, in which the Idaho Education Association has been accusing state schools Supt. Tom Luna of holding the bonuses hostage, to be paid out only if the reform laws are upheld; and Luna has been insisting he's constrained by timelines and can't send the bonuses out before the election. Turns out, it actually doesn't matter. Teachers who earned the bonuses last year will get them this fall regardless of the outcome of the referenda vote on Nov. 6/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Thoughts?
