“The Future of Teacher Compensation,” highlights alternative teacher compensation structures.
It examines limitations in our prevailing single salary teacher pay schedules and focuses on pay-for-performance alternatives that are designed primarily to improve student academic outcomes. Though evidence is sparse regarding the effectiveness of pay-for-performance reforms, the study finds that how reformers frame pay-for-performance proposals is as critical to their success, if not more so, than the particular features of the plans.
