A completely revised and updated edition of this highly readable volume on teacher incentives. Examines the status of the monetary and nonmonetary incentive plans in 17 school districts ten years after the Urban Institute's first review of these plans, and presents new findings and recommendations. A new section on career ladder programs as they relate to teacher incentives reflects the increased use of such plans during the past decade.
Discusses the major processes and policy issues that school districts need to address in implementing and operating incentive programs and provides recommendations regarding how program effectiveness can be improved. Case studies identify 1) the current status of the incentive plans, 2) the major changes that occurred to the plans over the ten-year period, and 3) the relative impacts of the plans on teacher performance, teacher motivation, and school climate.
Intended for local school boards, district administrators, principals, teachers, and other education professionals, the book identifies the major strengths and weaknesses of incentive programs. An excellent resource guide for schools and school districts as they design, develop, and inspire incentive program strategies.
