<strong>LOGAN—</strong> As usual there are a lot of issues involving education that will come before the Utah Legislature at its coming session. Republican State Senator Lyle Hillyard said one that seems to be in the forefront now has to do with how to reward those teachers who go the extra mile. Hillyard said this is an issue that makes teachers nervous.
“A good example would be four teachers teaching together, and one gets the bonus and the other three don’t. They may be in groups. So there’s a lot of issues, but I see now more of a willingness to talk about it,” Hillyard said. “These are some of the issues that are on the table in talking about it, and that I think probably has more beneficial, more long-term impact for education than anything else I hear about.”
Hillyard said he believes state lawmakers will try hard to come up with a way to reward the outstanding teachers.
