Felton’s comments on merit pay make former board member laugh

To the editor:

I had to laugh when I read Mehlville Board of Education member Larry Felton’s comments in the June 2 issue of the Call newspaper about merit pay for Mehlville School District employees.

The Call reported, “Board member Larry Felton, also on the committee, blamed past board members’ efforts for merit pay, which was approved by a historic 7-0 vote in 2014 but was dropped when the board members most in favor of it, Mark Stoner and Rich Franz, left the board that April.”

That evil Rich Franz and Mark Stoner.

Imagine, expecting teachers to actually earn their pay raises.
