Performance Funding

Education Week reports today that Indiana’s Governor Pence has proposed a two-year budget that would the tie the second year’s budget increase for K-12 spending to performance of schools and teachers.  Factors would include “school quality, graduation rate, and third-grade reading assessment.”

The article concludes with a note that “several other governors could follow Pence’s lead in the coming weeks.”

Is this where Governor Branstad’s allowable growth proposal is heading?  If not this year, then a later year if allowable growth is replaced with one hundred percent state aid?
