Performance-Pay for Teachers: Designing a System That Students Deserve
Center for Teaching Quality
Eighteen highly accomplished and diverse teachers from across America have spent the last year studying various efforts in creating alternatives in the way that teachers have been traditionally compensated. In this report, these educators offer unique solutions based on their understanding of the professional work of teachers, the best current thinking about teacher compensation, and the needs of the students, families, and communities they serve. The report notes that the single-salary schedule is fast becoming a relic of the industrial age and that new teacher-compensation systems are needed that will attract dedicated individuals, recognize high standards, reward initiative, encourage enterprise and collaboration, and keep successful teachers in our classrooms and schools throughout their careers, thus making teaching a true profession. This report is the first to emerge from a new initiative--TeacherSolutions--created and supported by the Center for Teaching Quality and the Teacher Leaders Network, a virtual professional community that includes teachers of proven excellence from around the nation. (Contains 5 endnotes.)
