The Politics of Teacher Pay Reforms. Research Brief
National Center on Performance Incentives
In "The Politics of Teacher Pay Reforms"--a paper presented at the National Center on Performance Incentives research to policy conference in February--Dan Goldhaber, a research professor at the Center for Reinventing Public Education at the University of Washington and an affiliated scholar with the Urban Institute's Education Policy Center, explores the politics of various teacher compensation reforms. He examines the political positions of the nation's two teacher unions, how well their views align with teachers' attitudes toward pay reform, and how both organizations influence the decisions made by public school districts to implement such reforms. In conclusion, Goldhaber contends that issues of reform implementation and the garnering of political support must be considered just as important to the success of teacher pay reform as the design features of the program itself.
