Negative Rewards for Positive Behaviors: The Paradox of Our Profession.
Castrale, E. Gale; Cunio, Theodore F.
Phi Delta Kappan, v77 n4 p320-21 Dec 1995
In a study of teachers and administrators seeking advanced degrees and certification, over 78% of teachers reported negative rewards that included larger classes and more duties and committee assignments. Over 85% of administrators were given more responsibilities with no pay increase. While such rewards seemed positive at first, they led to overload. Ameliorative suggestions are provided. (MLH)
