Pay for Performance?

Reading this blog about Mr. Obama’s perspective on how education should be conducted.  I don’t think paying teachers for their performance is such a great idea.  I understand that teachers do not receive the highest salary out there,but tis about more than just money.  The same principle applies here that applied with NCLB that money used as an incentivie does not preoduce the best results.  The only difference is now it has become something more personal with what Senator Obama is proposing.  We all have families we support and taking away our salary is unfair. There are all kinds of problems with standardized testing anyway and simply adding this incentive will do may harm than good.
