A question for the candidates


A question from a Medfield resident in tonight's gubernatorial debate. Schonda Schilling, wife of Red Sox star Curt Schilling, asked the candidates whether teachers should receive merit pay.

Republican Kerry Healey said she supported merit pay, while Democrat Deval Patrick said that, rather than individual merit pay, he supported merit pay that rewarded cooperation, such as awards for teams or schools.

Independent Christy Mihos and Green/Rainbow Party candidate Grace Ross also participated in the debate on Fox25, which was moderated by TV journalist Chris Wallace.
