Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger promoted merit pay for teachers

SACRAMENTO (AP) __ Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger promoted merit pay for teachers over the weekend. The Republican said it´s unfair to six (M) million students when their teachers earn the same pay whether they work hard or not.

The governor is pushing a ballot measure on a special election to be held later this year. The measure would link teacher pay to performance and would make it easier to fire teachers who have seniority.
