Paying bonuses to show up for work

I’m kicking myself for agreeing with Pete Thaw, but the report from Kanawha County Schools about how much additional money teachers are making this year just for showing up for work is amazing. But it gets worse.

I thought it was bad enough to give teachers extra pay not to take days off, but it turns out that the policy applies also to administrators and office workers. As Thaw said

“You’re going to tell me a child’s education is disrupted when someone in accounting is gone? That’s crazy,” he said. “Children don’t care who’s working here all day or not working here all day.”
