Attract and retain the highest-quality teachers through competitive compensation programs!

While many working in the teaching profession cite intangible rewards as reasons for staying in the profession, concrete rewards such as salary, benefits, and working conditions are inextricably linked to recruiting, motivating, and retaining highly-qualified teachers. This timely text examines the fundamental link between teacher pay and teacher quality as well as the extent to which it is aligned with student achievement.

Existing compensation models are reviewed in order to provide a practical, research-based approach for developing a comprehensive, best-practice teacher compensation system. School administrators can use these synthesized, innovative findings to:

Determine the most practical compensation model for achieving their school's objectives

Examine different pay options used across the country

Connect their school's compensation program to organizational goals

Discover how to attract and retain high-quality teachers
