Teacher compensation

From dKosopedia

The Consortium for Policy Research in Education (CPRE)[1] at the University of Wisconsin-Madison expands on several reasons why teacher compensation is long overdue for a redesign[2], including:
1. Teacher salary increases often are not linked to organizational needs
2. The public feels the teacher compensation structure rewards mediocrity; changing compensation can reassure the public that teacher performance is valued
3. Mechanisms are needed to stimulate teachers to develop knowledge and skills to teach the new curriculum standards that are being promulgated by professional content groups
4. Historically, changes to teacher compensation have followed changes in compensation methods for other kinds of employees
5. New forms of compensation can support the trend in education to identify, develop, and recognize accomplished professional practice 6. New forms of compensation can support standards-based reform
7. New forms of organization, teams, site-based management, contracting out, etc., suggest new ways to organize and manage schools.
