Merit, Motivation, and Mythology.
Dunwell, Robert R.
Teacher Education and Practice, v3 n1 p17-21 Spr-Sum 1986
Myths about merit pay for teachers (teachers are in favor of merit pay, money is a motivator, merit pay will persuade qualified people to enter and remain in teaching, merit pay promotes competition which produces excellence, and motivating teachers is a simple matter of offering extrinsic rewards) are negated in a review of relevant literature.
