This working paper examines behavioral responses to an incentive program that offers high-performing teachers in 10 school districts across the country $20,000 to transfer into the district's hardest-to-staff schools. Specifically, the paper looks at high-performing teachers' willingness to transfer and the effect of the transfer offer on the internal dynamics of receiving schools.
