Teacher Attitudes about Performance Incentives in Texas: Early Reactions to the GEEG Program. Research Brief
National Center on Performance Incentives
A recent report published by the National Center on Performance Incentives (NCPI) presents findings from the first-year evaluation of the Governor's Educator Excellence Grant (GEEG) program, one of several statewide educator incentive programs in Texas. Findings are based on surveys administered to GEEG teachers during the 2006-07 school year, the first year of program implementation. Surveys addressed the implementation process of schools' GEEG programs, teachers' attitudes toward performance incentives in general and GEEG specifically, and teachers' attitudes toward one another and their students since the inception of their schools' GEEG programs. This policy brief focuses specifically on teachers' attitudes toward performance incentives in general and the GEEG program. [This research brief describes work performed by the National Center on Performance Incentives and documented in "Governor's Educator Excellence Grant Program: Year One Evaluation Report", by Matthew G. Springer, Michael J. Podgursky, Jessica L. Lewis, Mark W. Ehlert, Catherine Gardner, Bonnie Ghosh-Dastidar, Omar S. Lopez, Christine H. Patterson, and Lori L. Taylor.]
