Lessons from 10 Years of Teacher Improvement Reforms.
Cornett, Lynn M.
Educational Leadership, v52 n5 p26-30 Feb 1995
Summarizes the Southern Regional Education Board's findings concerning 1980s teacher improvement reforms. Salaries doubled in 15 southern states, with pay increases tied to increased teacher accountability. However, available state funding covered evaluations, not staff development; pay-for-performance programs generated heated debates; and academically deficient teacher-preparation programs were criticized. The 1990s incentive programs reward all teachers in schools, meeting goals for student progress. (MLH)
