Teacher Compensation and Teacher Workforce Development
Kelley, Carolyn; Finnigan, Kara
Yearbook of the National Society for the Study of Education, v103 n1 p253-273 Apr 2004
Through No Child Left Behind, states receive funds that can be used to address "challenges to teacher quality, whether they concern teacher preparation and qualifications of new teachers, recruitment and hiring, induction, professional development, teacher retention, or the need for more capable principals and assistant principals to serve as effective school leaders." In this article, the authors focus on the role that one policy area--teacher compensation--can play in inhibiting or advancing teacher quality through its impact on attracting, retaining, and developing a high-quality teaching force. In their examination of compensation for teacher workforce development, they also focus on the unique situation high-poverty, low-performing urban schools face because of the particular challenges to attracting and retaining high-quality teachers in these schools.
