Teachers Union Seeks Public Vote On Bonus Bill

Teachers Union Seeks Public Vote On Bonus Bill
PIERRE, SD -

The main teachers union in South Dakota has decided to seek a public vote aimed at blocking Gov. Dennis Daugaard's plan to give bonuses to top teachers.

South Dakota Education Association President Sandy Arsenealt says the group will collect signatures to refer the measure to a public vote because teachers believe the bill will do little to help students.

The group must collect 15,855 valid signatures by June 18 to put the measure on the November ballot.

Daugaard says the measure will boost student achievement.

The bill passed by the Legislature would create scholarships for students who agree to teach critically needed subjects and give rewards to math and science teachers. It would give $5,000 annual bonuses to top teachers, but schools could also design their own reward plans.
