Should teachers be compensated based on their students' performance?

  • Yes they should

    If the teahers are paid on the idea of how there students grades look then they would take there job more seriously i only have a couple teachers who actually care. There are teachers that dont even put our grades in because they just dont care can fix that for the children of America

  • Good teachers should be acknowledged as they are a rarity.

    My agreement to this would depend widely upon the terms regarding the compensation, but in a general manner, teachers should definitely be acknowledged and rewarded for their excellence in teaching. Teachers who take an active role in encouraging the students, and tailoring teaching methods to different learning types are, unfortunately, somewhat of a rarity when it comes to educators. Regardless of a students' natural academic ability, students do better in school, and often in life, when they get the opportunity to be treated on an individual level. A great teacher can often change the course of a child's entire life.

  • They should be rewarded.

    Teachers get paid very little given the strain and importance of their job. I believe this is not fair: good teachers should be rewarded for creating students that excel. Mediocre teachers can continue to get paid at the same low rate that teachers get paid now. The truly bad teachers, on the other hand, should receive negative incentive to find another line of work.

  • To many variables

    There is to many situations in which it is not teachers fault. If this was the case there would be no teachers to teach the challenging kids, no one would would want to teach the kids that don't care. You cant judge teachers by the students success because there is different levels of difficulty in subjects.

  • Yes, teachers should be compensated based on their students' performance.

    Bad teachers should not get paid good money. Old teachers who have stopped caring about their quality should get paid very little. Paying teachers based on their student's performance will make teachers be held to a higher standard. Good teachers would like this as they can get paid what they are worth.

  • Is isn't the teacher's fault.

    What if a student is constantly sick and they have missed most of the school year?
    The teacher shouldn't be responsible for still educating the student. You might say the student still needs to make up the work but its hard to make work when you feel bad and sick all the time isn't it?

    What if the student moved the day before the big exam?
    The teacher shouldn't be responsible; you can't teach a years worth of learning in 1 day.

    What if the student moved from another country?
    The student has to take a major test in a strange language and the teacher gets paid a certain amount because of it? This is completely unfair and not the teacher's fault.

    Teachers shouldn't be paid based on the student's performances on 1 test. Tests don't define intelligence.

  • Why is it their fault?

    Teachers should not be paid based on student's performance. How can they control what the students do? They should get paid on THEIR performance, not the students'. I know merit pay encourages teachers to teach better, but they should do that without encouragement. Just because a student was sick or had a bad day and did bad on the test doesn't mean it's the teachers fault. Even if their class is great at testing, so the teacher gets paid a lot, or the class is horrible, more teachers think considerations, other than money is more important to them.

  • Teachers should not be compensated based on student performance

    There are many variables effecting the quality of a students work. How can we possibly hold a teacher accountable? She only has so much power, the children have to have a proper environment outside of school as much as in school. Good schooling is just as much about communities as it is teachers. This idea simply is not fair.

  • Too Many Outliers

    No, teacher's should not be compensated based on the performance of students. While it should play a good part in the process of determining salary, there are far too many outliers that could give unfair pay to teachers who do a great job teaching their students. What if a student is ill most of the year? What if a student never comes to class and fails on his own merit? There are simply too many hiccups in compensating teachers solely on student performance alone.
