Faculty Salary Systems in Independent Schools. NAIS Surveys & Reports.
Littleford, John C.; Lee, Valerie
Salary systems of nine member schools of the National Association of Independent Schools, chosen for their diversity of approach and for their strong commitment to high faculty salaries, are analyzed and compared according to six themes: description of structure, performance pay, compensation for nonteaching responsibilities, the decision-making process, teaching as a career, and resource base for instructional salaries. The case studies are presented in order from the least to the most structured salary systems. A comparative statistical analysis follows, from which general observations are drawn about the relative efficacy of different policy options. (TE)
