Teachers in Indiana are concerned about a new law that bases their salary increases in part on students' test scores. Questions include how such a system will be applied to teachers of non-tested subjects, such as art and music, and whether the new system will serve to weaken union negotiators. Proponents say the changes will provide financial incentives for teachers to do their best work, but critics say data show such systems do not improve student performance.
