Productivity report urges end to teacher bonus

BY BIANCA HALL

Performance bonuses for high-performing teachers should be shelved, the Productivity Commission recommended in a report released on Friday.

Victoria is the only state taking part in a pilot pay bonus trial for top teachers, which has been unpopular with teachers.

The federal government unveiled plans last year for a national performance bonus scheme, which will start paying teachers in 2014.

But the commission said the government should introduce that scheme as a temporary measure only, to test whether the scheme would actually work.
