Performance Incentives in Texas: Why Schools Chose Not to Participate. Research Brief
National Center on Performance Incentives
In "Performance Incentives in Texas: Why Schools Chose Not to Participate"--a paper presented at the National Center on Performance Incentives research to policy conference in February--Jessica Lewis and Matthew Springer of Vanderbilt University examine why some Texas public schools declined to participate in the Texas Educator Excellence Grant (TEEG) program. Their findings indicate that reservations about participation in the state-funded performance incentive program were less about outright opposition to performance incentive policies and more related to the interplay between schools' organizational contexts and policy features of the TEEG program. [This research brief describes work conducted by the National Center on Performance Incentives and documented in "Performance Incentives in Texas: Why Schools Chose Not to Participate" by Jessica Lewis and Matthew Springer, Working Paper 2008-18.]
