Linking Performance to Rewards for Teachers, Principals, and Schools. The 1990 SREB Career Ladder Clearinghouse Report.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
Information compiled from 50 states is presented to help schools, districts, and states look for answers on how to best provide incentives to improve education. Five key questions are addressed: (1) Are states linking rewards to performance of teachers or students? (2) Are incentive programs creating new roles for teachers and principals? (3) Are states continuing to fund incentive programs? (4) What has changed in schools because of incentive programs? and (5) What is the outlook? A chart lists state actions on incentive programs for each of the 50 states in 1990. The chart provides information on each state in the following areas: local initiative; pilots with state funding and/or assistance; full implementation of state program; state program under development; discussion--no legislative action pending; and type of program (e.g., teacher incentive, career ladder, mentor teacher). A narrative description is given of the program implemented or under consideration for each individual state. (JD)
