Report of a Literature Search and Analysis of the Findings of That Search.
Bhaerman, Robert D.
This study researched a) the current reward system for educational personnel in elementary and secondary schools and b) the efforts being made toward changing this reward system. Several reward systems, or merit approaches, were investigated. The most important is the use of a single salary which is based on years of teaching experience and level of preparation. The efforts being made to change this approach include a) the compensable factor method, b) management criteria, c) linear programming, d) differentiated staffing, e) merit pay (old style), and f) merit pay (new style). Two plans that combine these approaches are a) the Hawaii plan, which combines differentiated staffing, accountability, work schedule, and career development factors and b) the Clark plan, which is a mixture of differentiated staffing and merit pay (new style). Other efforts to change the reward system are fluid hierarchy, performance-based certification, Planning Program-Budgeting System (PPBS), combat pay, and the extended school year. (Generalizations from this research are presented along with a summary of the single salary schedule, reprinted from "American School Board Journal," May 1970, p.24. The bibliography for this work is available through the ERIC Clearinghouse on Teacher Education's local file, SP 006 926.) [Reproduced from best available copy.] (BRB)
