Summary

This book examines how teacher incentive pay and career ladder programs have been implemented--what forms they've taken; what issues arose as programs were established; what their impact has been so far; and what their future might be. It provides a program taxonomy and conceptual framework for understanding current trends within this still-evolving reform movement, including resistance to the change process. Most important, the book analyzes the potential impact on the real world of schools and how these programs affect teachers' skills and students' learning.

"The case studies provide a unique glimpse into the step-by-step implementation of incentive systems. The typology, a pioneering effort to categorize various incentive systems, is used later as a basis for comparing the impacts of different systems. This material will be invaluable to those who study the long-range effects of these reforms." -- Daniel L. Duke, University of Virginia

Richard M. Brandt is Curry Memorial Professor of Education at the University of Virginia.
