The three leaders discussed the status of merit pay in their schools Tuesday at a meeting of the House Education Oversight Committee

 

Superintendent of Public Instruction June Atkinson says public school leaders haven't found a good pay-for-performance model in the United States yet.

 

UNC President Tom Ross also said the 17 campuses need more than $2 billion for renovation and repairs. Community college President Scott Ralls wants about $15 million to offer classes in some study areas during the summer.
