A Message from Andy Pollotta About Merit Pay

We must always be on the lookout for education gimmicks, games and schemes. 

Under merit pay, teachers would be pitted against one another in a high-stakes monetary game, encouraged to treat students and their education as playing cards in the race around the Monopoly board. 

Take action now at the NYSUT Member Action Center to oppose any misguided merit pay scheme! 

Any system that creates a competitive, rather than collaborative, school climate where students are viewed as part of the salary equation rather than as children who deserve the best possible education raises real concerns. 

What makes sense is a career ladder program that provides extra pay for other assignments such as mentoring newer educators, earning advanced degrees or working in hard-to-staff schools. 

Take action now at the NYSUT Member Action Center to oppose any misguided merit pay scheme! 

Help us oppose any merit pay gimmick and send a message loud and clear that it's time for solutions, not more schemes. 

In solidarity,

P.S.:  Education is collaboration, not competition! Help us stop any merit pay scheme!
