Redesigning Schools to Reach Every Student with Excellent Teachers: Financial Planning for Time-Technology Swap--Rotation Model
Public Impact
This brief shows how teachers in a Time-Technology swap school model may earn more, sustainably. In this model, schools use age-appropriate portions of digital learning (as little as about an hour daily per student) to free the time of excellent teachers to teach more students and potentially to collaborate with peers. By teaching more students, teachers may earn more from existing per-pupil funding. Calculations of savings and costs from this model show how schools could increase teacher pay up to 41%, "without increasing class sizes and within existing budgets." In some variations, schools may pay "all" teachers more, within budget. Combining this model with other models to extend the reach of excellent teachers and promote excellence by all instructional staff may produce even greater savings to fund teacher pay increases and other priorities, while producing excellent student outcomes. This brief summarizes the expected savings and costs associated with a Time-Technology Swap. This is one way that schools and their teachers can simultaneously reach more students with excellent teaching, expand teachers' career opportunities, and sustainably fund higher pay and other priorities.
