Teacher Compensation Systems In The United States K-12 Public School System
AbstractThis paper provides a review of the current teacher compensation system and examines the structure of teacher compensation in the U.S. K-12 public education system. Teacher salaries are largely set by schedules that are neither performance related nor market-driven, and have significant consequences on school staffing and workforce quality. The second section summarizes the recent literature on compensation reform, with an emphasis on studies using experimental or quasiexperimental designs to evaluate the impact of programs on student achievement and teacher outcomes. A final section offers observations on prospects for future research and reforms.
