A Program of Research on Incentives for Educational Innovation. Final Report.
Pincus, John; Weiler, Daniel
This paper focuses on the process of innovation in school systems. It considers the definition of educational innovation, the desired level of innovation, factors leading to the acceptance or rejection of innovations by school systems, and how the acceptance of innovations in school systems differs from that in other social institutions. The authors examine the incentives provided to teachers and principals for implementing innovations once a decision is made to change, how these implementation incentives currently provided by the schools compare with those that might be considered optimal for supporting innovation, and how research could help to test hypotheses about school system incentives for adoption and about individual incentives for implementation. A 14-item bibliography is included. (Author/DN)
