The demand for more innovative, more competitive, and more motivating compensation plans for teachers is growing every day . . . and now Allan Odden and Carolyn Kelley have updated their classic book on teacher compensation to give school administrators all the new information and insight they need to start moving in the right direction. The Second Edition of Paying Teachers for What They Know and Do describes various pay and compensation initiatives currently in use across the country, including signing bonuses, upgrades in teacher pensions, higher salaries to those who are willing to work in more challenging schools, and other approaches. It also explores the different types of compensation plans used in the private sector as well as systems based on the continued acquisition of skills, knowledge, and experience

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Odden and Kelley demonstrate in this edition of Paying Teachers for What They Know and Do why they are the primary source for reliable information dealing with teacher compensation."

-- Bob Chase

"Every community developing a strategy to improve schools will want to use this book as a guide. It tells you everything you want to know about new teacher compensation strategies that affect all aspects of teaching and learning."

-- Yvonne Chan

"The second edition of Paying Teachers for What They Know and Do advances the ongoing discussion of how to create compensation systems that reward teachers for developing skills and knowledge needed to deliver standards-based instruction. As Odden and Kelley write, "we are still at the beginning of the learning curve" in understanding which systems are viable and effective, and therefore should monitor the development of new teacher compensation systems carefully."

-- Sandra Feldman

"A remarkable, eye-opening reference, and very highly recommended reading for educators, school board members, and administrators."

-- The Midwest Book Review * December 2001 issue *

"[The authors] have done an outstanding job of crafting a process for the administrator or school board member to begin discussions on altering staff compensation."

-- The School Administrator, June 2003
