1971-72 Survey of Merit Pay Plans in Public School Systems.
Liechti, Carroll D.
Eight school systems with enrollments of 50,000 to 77,000 and selected systems reported by the NEA research division as having some type of merit provision in the salary structure were surveyed by telephone. School systems in the first group surveyed reported any existing merit pay plans, any such plans being considered for the future, or any abandonment of such plans. The second group of school systems described their plans. Results of the survey revealed that not one district contacted has a currently operational merit pay plan. The author concludes that the larger the school district, the less likely it is to have a merit pay plan. However, depending on the definition of merit pay, many school systems have some salary provisions that would fit isolated definitions of merit pay. Appendixes include the questionnaire instrument and a progress report on the development of the San Diego city school merit pay plan. A related document is EA 004 747. (JF)
