Who Needs Incentives?

Since When Is It Necessary To Provide Teachers With Incentives To Teach?

As a retired teacher, school administrator, and university professor, I am insulted by the attempt at the national and state levels to “bribe” teachers to teach our children “better.”

In fact, all teachers should be insulted and outraged by this latest legislative absurdity.

Teaching is NOT an industrial assembly-line position in which the more pieces you finish, the more you earn.

The whole honorable point of becoming a teacher is that you want to plant a positive educational foundation and a love for learning into each student you teach and then to increase each child’s knowledge in ongoing increments so he or she may move toward a successful future.

Furthermore, if the state would provide professional teachers with a professional salary, there would be no need to complement the salary with incentives for additional teacher income.

The whole idea of incentives for teachers is ludicrous.

Legislators and educational administrators had better review their priorities and education reality before giving teachers an incentive program.

It’s irresponsible and inappropriate thinking, and it sends a negative message about the honorable field of teaching.

If we want to start an incentive program, perhaps we should start one by giving legislators incentives for each intelligent proposal they come up with.
