Gov. Phil Bryant used his Neshoba County Fair speech Thursday to promote merit pay for teachers, a plan he unveiled last week.
Republican Bryant says there are ways to avoid the possibility of principals simply giving more money to their favorite employees. He says the system should be based on students’ academic improvement.
Hundreds of people gathered on the red-clay fairgrounds south of Philadelphia to hear speeches from Bryant and other politicians.
Bryant repeated his opposition to expanding Medicaid to cover up to 400,000 more people under the federal health care overhaul plan.
