1. This county received 10 million to give teachers in merit pay.
And they don't even know how to give a test to figure out who deserves the merit pay.

I hear our county is having problems also.

"Orange County received more than $10 million of the nearly $150 million allocated by the state to distribute among its nearly 3,000 teachers, the district said in a statement Thursday."
