Teacher compensation as an avenue for school reform is once again growing in popularity and use. The U.S. education system is now at a critical juncture that requires thoughtful and informed consideration of compensation policies. Performance Incentives offers the most up-to-date and complete analysis of the promise and controversy around teacher pay for performance and recruitment and retention bonuses.
Matthew G. Springer of Vanderbilt University, director of the National Center on Performance Incentives, brought together an interdisciplinary team of nationally recognized scholars to address the issues surrounding teacher compensation reforms. Their purpose was to identify the potential strengths and weaknesses of performance-driven compensation policies and address key conceptual and implementation issues that have dominated the debate. Among the specific questions addressed:
- Why focus on teacher compensation as an avenue for school reform?
- How does scholarship and experience in other fields inform exploration of performance incentive policies in American K-12 education?
- What are the legal and political dynamics of teacher compensation reform?
- What type of educator incentive pay plans do teachers design for themselves?
- Can we effectively measure teacher and school performance, justifying policies that link pay to on-the-job performance?
- What has been the impact of performance incentive programs on teacher behavior and student outcomes?
