Charleston County schools got $11.7 million to run a pilot program of a controversial performance-based pay system for teachers in an effort to retain quality educators, but results show that turnover actually increased at most of the pilot schools. Of the $11.7 million pumped into the program, just $614,900 was paid out to teachers.
