Merit Pay--Does It Work in Education?
Nickerson, Neal C.
NASSP Bulletin, v68 n470 p65-66 Mar 1984
The author judges merit pay an ineffective reward for teachers' hard work and success, citing two fundamental problems: first, the objectivity of the person determining merit is always suspect; second, contrary to its intention, merit pay "demotivates" teachers and causes morale problems. (MJL)
