If most teachers get a bonus, does Minnesota's Q-Comp system work?

Minnesota's pioneering teacher pay-for-performance system has grown into one that awards a bonus to nearly every teacher who participates. Of the more than 10,000 Twin Cities educators who participate in the "Quality Compensation," or Q-Comp, system, 99 percent received some type of performance pay last year, a Pioneer Press analysis found. Teachers received an average bonus of $1,864 in the 17 metro districts that use Q-Comp.
