what's wrong with this situation?

educators are payed extra for graduating more students

I will be the first to say educators are under-payed as compared to many other occupations (*cough* professional athletes). However, providing a bonus for doing the job they are already being paid to complete is money that should be more intelligently budgeted. Apparently, the state board's desire is to see a larger quantity of students graduate rather than be concerned with the quality of the education being provided. Congratulations Indiana Department of Education, you have successfully created a commissioned sales environment. Only the best schools will succeed and since not every school can be the best, some will not even try.

Looks like the kids win again...
