Looming Questions in Performance Pay
Gratz, Donald B.
Phi Delta Kappan, v91 n8 p16-21 May 2010

What is the definition of student performance? and What are the goals of schooling? Reformers also need to examine the assumptions that guide their proposals and prepare to deal with the implementation issues that will arise.
