VA gov touts K-12 merit-pay, corporate tax credits

McDonnell also was joined by legislators to promote a bill that would establish a tax-credit program for corporations that donate cash to nonprofit groups that provide private-school scholarships to needy students.

VA Governor Bob McDonnell promises to give teachers awards for working in difficult schools. Good idea but why not full performance-based salaries? And does he have consistent methods for evaluating performance?
