Bill on Incentive Fund Offered

Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., a member of the House Education and Labor Committee, introduced a bill late last month that would formally authorize the Teacher Incentive Fund, which provides grants to school districts to devise performance-based-pay programs. Even without an official authorization, Congress had appropriated $99 million for the fund in fiscal 2006, but only $200,000 for fiscal 2007. The fund has $43 million remaining to distribute this year.
