Public School Teachers: Merit Pay

Speaking of merit pay.  Is this what we are REALLY saying?

A group of highly experienced and highly educated individuals who make a living building methods that measure proficiency of highly subjective topics in populations made up of disparate individuals are unable to to build methods that measure the proficiency of highly subjective topics of a group of which THEY are a member of.

In other words, teachers are absolutely comfortable with the concept merit pay in the form of grades of their students but somehow object to that same line of thinking to their own performance?
