SD House Panel Approves Teacher Bonus Plan

February 8, 2012, 7:35 PM

SD House Panel Approves Teacher Bonus Plan
PIERRE, SD - A South Dakota House panel has approved Gov. Dennis Daugaard's plan to give bonuses to the state's top performing teachers.

The Education Committee voted 11-4 to send the measure to the full House. All Republicans supported the plan, while all Democrats opposed it.

Supporters say it will boost student achievement. Some teachers say it will hurt the quality of education.

The Republican governor had proposed annual bonuses of $3,500 for math and science teachers. The revised plan gives new math and science teachers $8,000 annual bonuses for their first five years of teaching.

Daugaard wants to give $5,000 annual bonuses to the top 20 percent of teachers in each school district.

The new plan allows school districts to follow the governor's plan, create their own system or not take part.
