With the increasing shortage of teachers and pressures for more competent teachers, the question of more pay to attract trained personnel appears greatest upon the horizon. The mere mention of better pay seems to attract the attention of persons who offer panaceas for the teacher shortage problem. The best known plans are loosely catalogued under the general heading of merit rating.
