A Team-Centered Approach to Performance Compensation
Sutton, Lenford C.; Byrd-Blake, Marie
AASA Journal of Scholarship & Practice, v7 n2 p33-44 Sum 2010
One of the more controversial reform efforts, concerning efficient school systems, is teacher compensation linked with student outcomes. However, absent from the public discourse and empirical research literature concerning systemic reform is the probative value of pay structures which connect the compensation of school executives and student achievement. This paper describes the state of school executive compensation, similar performance pay plans in the Pittsburgh and Houston school districts and conditions of American education in 2010 that may enhance the appeal of school administrator compensation reform: (a) the worst economic recession since the 1930s, (b) policy responses to the recession, and (c) federally incentivized compensation reform.
